Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has sought the support of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) in the National Assembly (NA) speaker election.

According to Ary News, a meeting was held by Sharif with MQM-P leaders during his visit to Karachi. It was attended by Amir Khan, Aminul Haque, Farogh Naseem, Nasreen Jalil and others.
