It was not dhandli [rigging] – it was dhandla [major rigging], said MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar

Our party has decided not to join the government, said MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar.

“It was not dhandli [rigging] – it was dhandla [major rigging],” said the MQM leader. “MQM’s mandate was snatched and stolen. The elections were marred by the worst kind of rigging.”

He said that the party’s requests for vote recount were rejected. “Elections should be held again in the areas where we have purposely been made to lose,” he said.

More than a dozen parties announced at an All Parties Conference (APC) in Islamabad on Friday that they will protest over the election results. However, the group remained divided with some parties pledging to boycott joining the National Assembly and others calling for a new vote.

The PML-N announced its support for the group but stopped short of saying it would boycott the new parliament. The PPP was notably absent from the APC and said in a separate announcement that it rejected the results, but vowed to try to convince the other parties to participate in the parliamentary process.
