PTI Announces Coalition Plans with MWM and JI: Imran Khan’s Directives Unveiled
The PTI has decided, under the direction of party founder Imran Khan, to form coalitions in both the Centre and Punjab with the Majlis Wahdat-i-Muslimeen (MWM). The party’s Central Information Secretary, Raoof Hasan, announced this decision on Tuesday during a press conference in Islamabad.
Hasan stated that Imran Khan, currently incarcerated in Adiala Jail on various charges, made decisions regarding the party’s strategy for government formation. According to Hasan, Imran approved of forming a coalition with the MWM in both the Centre and Punjab and with the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) in KP for the reserved seats.
The PTI founder also authorized Ali Amin Gandapur, the party’s KP president, to pursue the formation of government in the province, where the PTI holds a significant majority.
Developments and Instructions from Imran Khan and PTI Leadership
Furthermore, Imran Khan instructed Hasan to initiate contact with all political parties, except for PML-N, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, and PPP, to explore coalition partnerships focused on democratic governance.
Additionally, Amir Dogar was reappointed as the party’s chief whip in the National Assembly (NA).
Imran Khan also emphasized the urgency of holding intra-party elections and demanded the prompt return of around 65 seats allegedly “stolen” from the PTI.
In the meantime, the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) has responded positively to the PTI’s proposal for a coalition government in KP, although they have not yet provided a final answer. JI Central Information Secretary Qaisar Sharif stated that consultations will be held within the party before responding to the PTI’s proposal.
