Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari said that the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) is an ally and will remain so, however, he sought time from the party over their demands in connection with local bodies elections and delimitation of constituencies.

The PPP co-chairperson assured MQM-P that the matter will be resolved in two to three days. The PPP and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) have failed to allay the reservations of the MQM mainly on the issues of delimitation of constituencies and upcoming local government elections in Karachi.

On Monday night, former president Asif Ali Zardari presided over a round of talks at Bilawal House. Media reports said that negotiations remained inconclusive. 

The meeting was attended by PML-N’s representatives — Rana Sanaullah and Ayaz Sadiq — while MQM-P was represented by Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori, Faisal Sabzwari, Wasim Akhtar, Jawed Hanif and Khawaja Izharul Haq.

The PPP was represented by Sindh CM and his cabinet members.
