London: Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari
and Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Altaf Hussain have agreed
to continue the two parties` coalition in Sindh province
despite differences in many areas.
The decision was taken by the two leaders at a meeting
here last evening, which was attended by Interior Minister
Rehman Malik, presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar and
other senior officials. Asifa Bhutto Zardari was also present
by her father`s side.
Hussain and Rehman Malik told newsmen that both the
coalition partners were united on the understanding that
Pakistan needed stability and its strength lay in the
continuation of the ongoing democratic process.
The two leaders also discussed the thorny issue of local
government system and the MQM appealed to the president not to
abolish the system as it had benefitted a lot of people, The
Hussain said "some elements" were conspiring against
PPP-MQM coalition to destablise the government and their
target was the frail democratic system.
"These elements are trying to create a gulf between the
two coalition partners and we have resolved that both parties
will not allow it," he said.
