PPP, MQM-P agree to amend LG law

The PPP and MQM-P on Thursday agreed to work together for adopting a local government law that would benefit the residents of urban and rural parts of Sindh.

The parties made the announcement in a joint press conference at the MQM-P’s head office in Bahadurabad.

Talking to journalists, the leaders of the two parties said that they have to work together for the sake of Sindh and the rest of the country and said that the parties have agreed to continue with their talks to further amend the provincial local government law.

They said the two parties have held talks in a cordial and pleasant manner as the meeting discussed in detail issues related to local government law and the prevailing water crisis in Sindh, particularly in Karachi.

The MQM-P leaders said on the occasion that the coordination committee of the party would make the final decision whether to join the Sindh government after the accord signed by them with the PPP before the change of government is implemented and amendments are also incorporated into the local government law.
