Sattar recommends names for candidature of Senate election

Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-P) convener Farooq Sattar has suggested four new names as nominees for the upcoming Senate elections, sources informed.
Rumours of a split in the party were rife after Sattar abruptly left a party meeting on February 5 over a disagreement on nominations of Senate candidates with senior party leader and deputy convener Amir Khan.
According to information, Sattar has suggested nomination of Ahmed Chinoy Khawaja Sohail Mansoor, Ansar Naqvi, and Farhan Chishti as the party’s candidates for the Senate elections after the Rabita Committee and Sattar took different positions on the Senate elections.
The party members now suggested by Sattar have already filled nomination forms, sources have claimed.
