Munawwar Hasan’s election surprises JI stalwarts

The election of Syed Munawwar Hasan, the Karachi-based Secretary General of the Jamaat-e-Islami, as the JI Ameer came as a shock to many stalwarts of the party. He was declared the new Ameer out of schedule by the party’s Nazim-e-election Abdul Hafeez.

According to the schedule, the poll result of the new JI Ameer was to be announced in the first week of April, i.e. after the expiry of the term of outgoing Ameer, Qazi Hussain, who will retire on March 31.

When The News contacted JI Sindh Naib Ameer Dr Meraj-ul-Huda Siddiqi, he said that the announcement of election result was not made in haste since the Nazim-e-election was bound to declare the result after the counting of votes was complete.

Hasan’s election, however, came as a disappointment for many party stalwarts who thought that the seat must not go to a resident of Karachi.
