KARACHI: Founder of Mohajir Quami Movement-Haqiqi (MQM-H) Afaq Ahmad, in a surprising development, backed MQM's candidate Kamran Tessori in the PS-114 election, on Friday.

Addressing media personnel, Afaq Ahmad called upon Mohajir voters in the constituency to back Kamran Tessori, the candidate for MQM from PS-114.

"Had we fielded our candidate from that area, Afaq Ahmad's vote would have been for Kamran Tessori," he said. "Hence, I appeal to my Mohajir voters not to waste their votes in this election," he added.

Afaq further said that there were differences between MQM-H and MQM but he had supported Tessori in order to send the message that dividing the Mohajir votebank was futile.

"If we want success in the elections of 2018, then we have to save our votes from being divided," he said.
