Is PTI considering alliance with other parties?
After the conclusion of the polling results, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) backed independent candidates secured most number of seats in the General Elections 2024.
With 99 seats to their name, their number is not enough to form a government for the second term.
In this regard, today (Saturday) PTI top leadership has convened a meeting to discuss forging alliances with other political parties.
PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Khan, Asad Qaiser, Ali Muhammad Khan and others would attend the meeting that would discuss the formation of the new central and provincial governments, said a statement released by PTI.
On Friday, Imran Khan’s party said that they are in a position to form a government in center ruling out alliance with either Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) or Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
“We are not in contact with PPP or PML-N,” Barrister Gohar told media.
“We are not intending to form a coalition government with PPP and PML-N,” said Barrister Gohar Ali Khan. “We will form the government at the Centre and Punjab,” he added.
On the other hand, PML-N and PPP have stated the discussion to form a possible coalition government in the centre and Punjab.
PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif met PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari, and invited them to work together for Pakistan.
