The Muttahida Qaumi Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) have decided to regroup with “one name, one symbol, and one manifesto”, said Dr. Farooq Sattar. This is after a tumultuous year for the party and it announced a complete disassociation from their former leadership based in London.

This news has received mixed reactions from politicians and the general public alike. Strong condemnation by MQM leaders has also pushed Dr. Sattar to announce a meeting today with his party at 5 pm.

Refuting rumors of a merger, Faisal Sabzwari stated that MQM and PSP had only formed an “alliance” and not announced a merger.

Pervez Musharraf, in a video message on Wednesday, welcomed this alliance even before its formal announcement.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) leader Asad Umar regarded the event as a long-formed conclusion.

Naeemul Haque said there was “nothing wrong” with the announced alliance, however, he raised questions over the leaders’ past.

Nabil Gabol even named the new party.

MQM-London leader Nadeem Nusrat labeled the MQM-PSP merger a conspiracy establishment to weaken Altaf Hussain’s hold over Karachi.
