Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) has started pondering over nominating its candidate for the upcoming Senate election, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel Thursday.

Pakistan would select new members for the upper house of the parliament through national and provincial assemblies as half of incumbent senators would retire on March 11 after completing their six-year term.

MQM is considering to finalise its candidate for the senate election and the names of MQM stalwarts Dr Shahab Imam, former Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar and Faisal Sabazwari.

However, there are differences among the MQM ranks on the name of Dr Shahab Imama, who is considered to be a close aide of Federal Law Minister and MQM MNA Farogh Nasim.
