      KARACHI: All Pakistan Muslim League head Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf, who is returning to Pakistan on March 24, has entered into an electoral alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) — the second largest party in Sindh — it is learnt. According to sources, the MQM will not field any candidate against him on NA-250 (Clifton-Defence) and would strongly support him. The decision has been attributed to the deliberations of the Rabita Committee due to the efforts of MQM Quaid Altaf Hussain and Sindh Governor Ishratul Ebad. The MQM will also cooperate in Musharraf’s welcome when he returns.
