LONDON: The London Coordination Committee of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was restored by the party leadership hours after being suspended late Friday night.

A statement issued in the day said that the London Secretariat’s Rabita Committee had been suspended with immediate effect and asked the party workers and office-bearers to contact Manzoor Ahmed instead of Nadeem Nusrat or committee members.

However, another statement issued late Friday night said that the Rabita Committee had been restored, and Nadeem Nusrat would continue discharging his duties. The Coordination Committee is the main decision-making body of the MQM.
