Under the new system, the ‘unit’ of the MQM’s organisational structure would now be called ‘union committee’ and `unit in-charge’`UC organiser’. Similarly, ‘sector’ would now be referred as `town’ and ‘sector in-charge’`town organisers’.
Announcement to this effect was made by MQM chief Altaf Hussain during workers convention on Sunday.
He underlined that the changes were limited to Karachi and for a period of two years.
The party’s central executive council will look after the organisational work at the town and union council levels.
Earlier, the MQM’s rival the Mohajir Qaumi Movement had also restructured its `unit and sector’ system before local government elections in city on December 5.
