London/Karachi: Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder and Chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday once again resigned as the party head and handed over command to Farooq Sattar.
Sattar, the senior deputy convener of MQM, is a parliamentary leader of the party in the National Assembly.
He was also elected Karachi’s mayor and served the city from 1987 to 1992.
Later, London-based MQM leader Mustafa Azizabadi turned to Twitter to clarify Altaf’s announcement, saying that the party chief had only shared his sentiments with the party workers.
“Quaid-e-Tehreek Altaf Hussain in his address talked about his stepping down as the party head, but all the workers have rejected it,” he said.
