Political Crisis Deepens in Pakistan

The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) took the decision after developing major differences with the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

Announcing the surprising and sudden decision, the MQP leader Farooq Sattar claimed that the decision to part ways with the PPP had been taken because of the PPP autocratic and critic attempts to force MQM to give up one of the seats won in the last Pakistani administered Kashmir Legislative Assembly elections.

The decision came a day after MQM chief Altaf Hussain accused the PPP of stabbing his party in the back, warning that by deceiving true ally the government has itself set off o process which will bring about its down fall.

On Sunday, the MQM boycotted the elections in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir after the government postponed elections on two seats MQM poised to win.

Governor of Sindh province, Ishra-ul-Ebad has also resigned as per decision of the party.

The MQM has withdrawn its two ministers from the Federal Government and all ministers from Sindh government.

Some analysts regard it as a calculated move to create a situation, in cooperation with other parties that brings the government under pressure to consider premature elections.

Others are of the view that the MQM will again agree to join hands with the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party after getting some demands met.

The PPP leadership has already started efforts to iron out differences with the MQM. President Zardari is expected to have a meeting with MQM chief Altaf Hussain in London during the next few days and discuss the future ties between the two parties, which have been working together for the past three years despite divergent views.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz reacting to the move of MQM termed the decision timely, adding that it would help hold the PPP-led government accountable effectively.

At the federal level the PPP enjoys support of Pakistan Muslim League-Q as well as the Awami National Party so the MQM decision to join the opposition will not affect the PP government at center or Sindh province. In Sindh PPP has a simple majority in 168-member house.
