Former president and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf has expressed his wish to become the joint president of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP).
According to Express News, MQM leader Khawaja Izhar held a meeting with Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf where the latter told the former that MQM is not left with any prominent personality in the wake of the minus one formula and that the party needs one to foster its roots in the masses, presenting himself as a suitable personality for the purpose.
Musharraf said that if he were to become the leader of MQM it would greatly benefit the party since he was popular among the masses and could utilise this platform to make major contributions. During the meeting, the former president also expressed his idea of a merger between PSP and MQM and offered to take responsibility for getting PSP to accept MQM in its fold. According to reports, supporters of Musharraf tried to contact PSP chief Mustafa Kamal but he could not be reached.
