NA s structure suggests that there are 180 members of the ruling coalition with seven of the MQM. The MQM has been at daggers drawn with the PDM led federal government over the issue of delimitation of constituencies in Karachi. The MQM, earlier, summoned a party meeting to consider the option of pulling out of alliance with the federal government. If the MQM pulls out, it could lead to the removal of Mr Shehbaz as the PM.
