ECP verdict is ‘conspiracy’:Farooq Sattar

ISLAMABAD -UNS : Assailing today’s verdict of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) removing him as convener of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P), Farooq Sattar said the verdict will go down as a dark chapter in history.

Speaking to the media, visibly discontented Sattar said, “The decision will be remembered as a dark verdict in history. The ruling is utterly illegal and unconstitutional.”

He said there was no precedent for such a decision in the country’s history.

 

Sattar opined that the verdict against him would strengthen the MQM London.

Earlier, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, a five-member bench allowed petitions of MQM Bahadurabad leaders – Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Kanwar Naveed Jameel – through which they challenged Feb 18 intra-party elections of the Sattar-led MQM-P group.

The bench declared the intra party polls null and void through a short order.

It also rejected Sattar’s application questioning the jurisdiction of the commission in intra-party matters.

Sattar through his counsel argued that the electoral body lacked authority to intervene in intra-party conflicts, requesting it to dismiss the petitions.

He further requested the poll supervisory body to decide the case in line with the party’s constitution.
