MQM to submit new proposals on LG system: Durrani

Islamabad

 
January 11, 2012

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has now indicated to the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) that they would submit new proposals on the local government system.
This was disclosed to The News by Sindh Minister for Local Government Agha Siraj Durrani when asked about the status of the draft of the new LG system. He said the Muttahida had already submitted recommendations last year that were being studied by the PPP. Durrani said that the MQM had not budged from its stance of implementing the local government system of 2001.
The minister said that the PPP wanted to come up with a law that incorporates both the local government systems of 2001 and 1979, which should be acceptable to all. Durrani said that the PPP was trying to accommodate the MQM to the maximum extent, adding: “It was on their (MQM’s) complaint that the PML-F, the ANP and the PML-Q were kept out of the core committee meetings.”
He said that a new local government system could only be finalised after these coalition partners were taken into confidence. He said that their meeting was scheduled for January 14 (Saturday).
