Kamran Tessori of MQM-P announces not to contest polls
KARACHI – Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Kamran Tessori has announced not to contest the General Elections 2018 from any constituency.

Tessori has withdrawn his candidacy from all eight constituencies citing conflict with ‘group of eight’ on Monday.

“The entire authority of the MQM-P falls under Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui.” Said Kamran

“The responsibility for the results of July 25 polls will fall on the MQM-P,” said the disgruntled member.

Tessori held that MQM-P has been taken hostage by the group of eight. Tessori further added that he fears nothing while vowing to continue the fight.

“I don’t want to give any chance to the MQM-P Bahadurabad faction,” said Kamran Tessori.

Tessori statement came days before general elections in Pakistan to be held on July 25.

Earlier, Tessori had announced to contest the elections as an independent candidate.
