KARACHI: The leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Member National Assembly Farooq Sattar has said that his party is ready to contest the local bodies’ elections whenever they are held.

Talking to media here on Wednesday he said that after the decision of Sindh High Court to annul the recent delimitations there are now doubts about the date of elections that should be cleared by the Election Commission.

He said that local bodies’ election is a democratic right of the people so they can elect their representatives.

Farooq Sattar further said his party would work to have an independent local bodies system so the elected representatives could work for the people with complete ease and independence.

He informed that MQM is holding its public rallies for local bodies elections in Hyderabad and Karachi on 3rd and 5th of this month respectively.
