Very interesting. This all is very detailed and you're the second person I hear claiming this, but could you elaborate on your source or are you yourself involved in this process?
As far as I can see now it's either one of two things that happened:
1. Either the IMT has neglected and ignored their PPP section (which is unlikely) and now that their MP was voted out of parliament (despite PPP growth?!) and he has taken another role in the PPP the IMT suddenly concludes that this ex-MP no longer fits inside the IMT and kicks him out, splitting away a third of their total membership in the international.
2. Or, what I think is more likely, the IMT knew about Manzoor Ahmed Choudry's reformist stance and supported it, being too happy about having an MP at all, for years. This has created a lot of support for Manzoors ideas and maybe Manzoor is even a logical conclusion of internal reformist processes as an effect of being inside the PPP despite everything. Now the IMT has made a shift to the left, creating this split.
But the picture is still incomplete for me, so I can very well be wrong.
OI OI OI: anything to comment?
