Karachi (September 02, 2018): Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Ali Raza Abidi has resigned from party membership and forwarded his resignation to Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui.

MQM-P had filed nomination papers of Faisal Sabzwari for by-elections in NA-243 and ignored Ali Raza Abidi.
This is a major setback for the MQM-P, especially considering that the resignation comes ahead of the by-polls, wherein Abidi believed he would be nominated in the NA-243 constituency.
It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Imran Khan had won during the July 25 general election but later let go of the NA-243 seat.
