The decision to convene the APC was taken by the provincial caretaker Chief Minister Qurban Alvi after complaints especially by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) that the party was being forced to consider boycott of the polls over what it said daily killings of its leaders and workers.

The MQM in recent days had alleged that due to interference from some quarters the party as well as its former coalition partners the Awami National Party (ANP) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) could not launch election campaign in the city, a total contrast to Punjab where political activities were in full swing.

A tentative date of April 30 has been set by the Sindh government and it was in the process of extending invitations to all the parties and stakeholders to deal with various issues especially law and order particularly in Karachi.
