KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Wednesday continued with its sit-in outside the Election Commission of Pakistan demanding re-polling in NA-250 constituency of Karachi.
The sit-in started Tuesday night in which hundreds of MQM workers, including women, gathered outside the ECP office, holding banners and plycards and chanting slogans against the election authorities for alleged rigging in the electoral constituency.
Addressing the party’s protest sit-in, MQM chief Altaf Hussain said that none would be allowed to snatch the mandate of MQM.
He urged Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd.) Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim not to try creating rifts by ordering re-elections in some polling stations of NA-250, and asked him to conduct re-vote under Pakistan Army in the entire constituency.
Altaf Hussain said the number of sit-in participants will ramp up gradually with the passage of time.
