Dr Saif-ur-Rehman Finalized for Karachi Administrator

Sindh govt approves MQM-nominated Saif-ur-Rehman as new administrator.

Dr Saif-ur-Rehman is currently the Governor of Sindh Kamran Tessori’s Principle Secretary, If a political administrator is appointed as the new KMC chief, the MQM-P has recommended party leader Abdul Waseem, while Dr Saif-Ur-name Rehman’s has been shortlisted if a government officer is chosen.

Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, Sindh Local Government Minister, stated on December 2 that a MQM-P nominee will be appointed to the KMC office within a day or two.

“We had already discussed with MQM-P that whoever they name would become the next administrator,” the minister told journalists, flanked by PPP and MQM-P leaders.

The change occurred after a PPP delegation met with MQM-P leaders at the party’s Bahadurbad office to discuss the upcoming Senate elections.

Names of three DMC administrators are now official.

According to the sources, MQM-P has also completed its advice for DMC administrators in three districts. The names of Shareef Khan for District Central, Shakeel Ahmed for District East, and Furqan Ateeb for District Korangi have all been proposed as administrators.

Wednesday’s consultation between the MQM-P Raabta Committee and Sindh Governor Kamran Tessori resulted in the shortlisting of names.

“Charter of rights” by MQM-P and PPP

In exchange for voting against the Imran Khan administration when the opposition parties planned to oust him from office, the PPP had pledged to allow the MQM-P greater room in Karachi’s administrative structure.

Since then, there have been numerous rounds of negotiations between the two parties to resolve the problem, but little progress has been made, causing the MQM-P to bring the issue up with PM Shehbaz Sharif, who has pledged to address their complaints.

The two parties committed to forming a “long-term collaboration to ensure unity among people; to promote social justice; and to secure the economic well-being of the people of Sindh, in particular of those who are left behind for various causes” when they signed a document in March.

The Supreme Court’s ruling regarding local government is to be implemented in letter and spirit within a month, per the terms of the negotiated accord, with the consent of PPP and MQM-P.
