MQM rejects draft bill for Sindh Local Bodies system


Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Sunday rejected the draft bill of Sindh Local Bodies system which Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has decided to present before the Sindh Assembly on Monday.

Talking to Geo News, MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari said the contents of the draft bill were in clash with the spirit of Article-140 of the Constitution. “We will oppose the bill if it is presented before the assembly,” he added.

He said under the proposed bill the local governments will not enjoy financial, political and administrative powers. The public representatives are unable to resolve issues without having the necessary powers, he argued.
