Sattar has two days to respond

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday gave Muttahida Qaumi Movement-P PIB faction leader Farooq Sattar till March 1 to submit his response in a petition filed against him by the Bahadurabad faction in the party.
During the hearing, Bahadurabad faction lawyer Farogh Naseem argued that the intra-party election conducted by Sattar-led PIB faction was declared illegal by the coordinating committee.
The proceedings were adjourned after Babar Sattar, Sattar’s lawyer, sought time from the commission to submit his reply on the matter.
Speaking to the media outside the court, Babar Sattar said two petitions were filed against his client. “The ECP has given us limited time to file the response,” Sattar said, adding that he will give a detailed response on the next hearing.
Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui of the Bahadurabad faction told the media that the faction was open to negotiations. He invited Sattar to visit Bahadurabad office and take over the party’s leadership.
“This is like a discussion on a few issues between brothers,” he said, referring to the ongoing crisis in the Karachi-based party.
Siddiqui further said that the ECP’s decision would be final and acceptable to all parties to the petition.
