Izhar dispels rumours over change of leadership

Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Khawaja Izhar ul Hassan dispelled rumours that General Pervez Musharraf (Retd) was going to head the party. 

“These are all rumours that there will be a change in leadership in the party,” Khawaja Izhar said on Wednesday. “There are no vacancies in the MQM-P leadership.

This is not the mechanism we follow,” he said, adding that if there is a change in leadership it will be from within the party ranks.

He said that doors of the party are open for everyone including former president General Pervez Musharraf (Retd) and former Sindh governor Dr Ishrat ul Ebad.

He said that all of Pakistan wants development in Karachi and for giving powers to local bodies was essential. “If local bodies’ representatives do not get rights we will hold protests and also approach the court.”

He added that they were not considering joining the Sindh govt unless they were given the slot of CM.
