The three day annual convention of MQM USA was held at a local hotel in the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida from May 21-23 and was attended by hundreds of MQM USA workers and office bearers from all over USA along with people belonging to all nationalities of Pakistan.

In his address the Central Organizer Kamal Zafar said that MQM is the voice of all in Pakistan and the representative of all. He said that the workers of MQM USA are taking the message to the representatives of all the nationalities of Pakistan living in USA to apprise them of the essence of the message. He said that the workers of MQM USA are standing shoulder to shoulder to the efforts of the leader of MQM Mr. Altaf Hussain in eliminating the feudal system and restoring the public sovereignty. He also congratulated the people of Pakistan and especially the people of Punjab on the success of the Punjab Convention and said that the rescue is knocking at their door and to open the door is their discretion. Ibad Rehman said in his address that by making the Punjab Convention a success the people of Punjab have given the indication and affirmation that they have wholeheartedly accepted the philosophy of Mr. Altaf Hussain and MQM and are ready for the change which is imminent. He said that MQM has strived at its best, both in the government and out of the government, to raise voice against tyranny and for the transfer of sovereignty to the public. The MPA Moeed Siddiqui said, while addressing the public gathering, that MQM has proved that it is the only party that can establish good governance by showing the perfect models of good governance in their jurisdictions in Karachi and the other parts of the province of Sindh. The MNA Ferhat Khan who also hails from Florida, said that out of hundreds of MNAs in the National Assembly, the members belonging to MQM are only 25, however, they still carry more weight that the rest  just because of their character and the public service they render. He said that MQM has introduced the culture of common manís sovereignty in place of the legacy politics and will fight for its thriving until it takes place. The former federal minister and member National Assembly, and the Patron-in-Chief MQM North America said to an all-ear crowd at the public gathering in the 14th Annual Convention of MQM USA at Florida, that the success of the Punjab Convention shows that the people of Pakistan and Punjab have identified their friends and foes. He said that in a country where there had always been either martial law or feudal law, the rule of peopleís law was as difficult as anything; however MQM took the burden of this and a young man started this all alone and now after 26 years the voice of that single young man has manifested in an immense public power. He appealed to the politicians of Pakistan that they must set aside their differences and their vested interests and work together to save Pakistan. He said the first step towards this should be that all politicians must announce that they will keep themselves and their relatives out of power and will give tickets to their workers and people form educated middle-class. He said it sounds difficult, however the leader of MQM Mr. Altaf Hussain has personally proved this by staying away and keeping his relatives away of the power and the electoral processes.
