The Farooq Sattar-led Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has issued show-cause notices to more than 20 Rabita Committee members, days after a division in the party over awarding Senate election tickets.
According to details, it was also announced by the committee that it was delegating the right to choose party's elections candidates to deputy-convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui.
Addressing the media, Sattar said he would settle the issue of four Senate seat nominees in order to save the party.
The letter to the ECP escalated the conflict, forcing the coordination committee to retract the letter on Saturday.
Farooq Sattar has expressed apprehensions over the letter written by the coordination committee to the ECP, said Kunwar Naveed Jamil while announcing withdrawal of the letter in a press conference along other coordination committee members. Coordination committee has publicly notified the termination of Kamran Tessori for six months.
A day after the two groups - publicly called PIB group led by Dr Sattar and Bahadurabad group led by senior deputy convener Amir Khan - filed separate nomination papers for their respective candidates for the March 3 Senate elections, the MQM-P coordination committee held a meeting at its Bahadurabad headquarters and made a decision to take back Dr Sattar's discretionary powers.
Sources said that majority of participants seconded Khan's views, upon which Dr Sattar boycotted the meeting and left for his PIB Colony residence in a huff.
He said Dr Sattar had wanted to sacrifice two of the top four candidates to accommodate Tessori.
After he was expelled from MQM-P previous year, Baloch had told a private news channel that Farooq Sattar and Amir Khan were heading their separate groups within the party.
