KARACHI: Sindh Local Government Minister Nasir Hussain Shah said city’s next administrator would be from MQM-P and slot will be filled in a day or two.

“We had already discussed with MQM-P that whomever they name would become next administrator,” minister flanked by PPP and MQM-P leaders told journalists. Development came after PPP delegation met MQM-P leaders at party’s Bahadurbad office, where discussion regarding Senate elections came under discussion. PPP has nominated its stalwart Waqar Mehdi for Senate seat that fell vacant after party leader Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar resigned earlier this month after developing differences with party.

Briefing journalists about meeting, former mayor Karachi and MQM-P’s senior leader Waseem Akhtar said Shah visited to discuss upcoming Senate election. “Nasir Shah and PPP leadership wanted MQM-P to withdraw its candidate. After discussing request with [party converner] Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Raabta Committee, we have decided to withdraw our candidate tomorrow,” Akhtar said.

As he announced withdrawal, MQM-P leader hoped that Mehdi would work for betterment of Sindh and its capital, Karachi. For his part, Shah said after MQM-P withdraws its candidate, Mehdi will automatically become a Senator as no other party has nominated their candidate for vacant seat.
