Finance and Revenue Minister Abdul Hafeez Sheikh said Monday that the government and its allies are united and will win the next Senate election.
Allies of the federal government in a press conference last night have promised to support him in the upcoming Senate elections on March 3.
The ministers’ comments came after a meeting at the residence of Defense Production Minister Zubeida Jalal. After the meeting, Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunications Syed Aminul Haq, Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, and other federal ministers addressed the joint president.
Haq said the MQM (P) along with other allies of the government would stand with the PTI in the next Senate elections.
He said that the allies of the federal government are on the same page, which includes the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (Muslim League-Q), Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), and MQMP. ۔
– For a sustainable democracy
– Supremacy of Parliament
– Zero tolerance for corruption
The minister said that despite the MQM’s reservations with the PTI, it has decided to support the ruling party in the upper house elections.
Criticizing the PPP, the federal minister said that the ‘corrupt’ Sindh government had ‘destroyed’ the province. “In 13 years, they have not provided 13 gallons of water for Karachi nor have they provided 13 buses for Karachi.”
“I want to make it clear to the Sindh government that no one will be allowed to interfere in the development of Karachi,” he warned. He added that all MQM provincial legislators stood behind the PTI.
Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Fehmida Mirza said the government was passing ordinances due to obstacles in the National Assembly.
“If we want to close the door to corruption, then proportional representation is needed,” the minister said. The minister added that all government allies have decided to support him in the elections.
Addressing the President, Hafeez Sheikh said that the government wants to ensure transparent elections. “We want members [national and provincial] Assemblies to meet the aspirations of the people. “
“We (the government and its allies) are all united,” he added.
