PTI Gathers to Explore Potential Political Partnerships

"We have no intention of forming a coalition with PPP and PML-N," emphasized Barrister Gohar Ali Khan. "Our focus is on forming governments at the Centre and in Punjab," he further stated.

After the 2024 general elections saw numerous independent candidates affiliated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) clinch victories, the former ruling party has called for a meeting to discuss potential alliances with other political factions.

Scheduled to attend the meeting are PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Khan, Asad Qaiser, Ali Muhammad Khan, and other key members. The agenda includes deliberations on forming new central and provincial governments, as announced by PTI.

In a statement on Friday, PTI stated its capability to secure a government at the center and dismissed the possibility of collaborating with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

“We have not engaged in any dialogue with PPP or PML-N,” stated Barrister Gohar to Geo News. He asserted PTI’s projection to win around 150 National Assembly seats, sufficient to establish a government at the center.

“We have no intention of forming a coalition with PPP and PML-N,” emphasized Barrister Gohar Ali Khan. “Our focus is on forming governments at the Centre and in Punjab,” he further stated.

PTI expressed confidence in securing a majority in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and reiterated its commitment to parliamentary participation and effective governance.

Conversely, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have signaled their intention to forge a coalition government at the center and in Punjab. PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, in a meeting with PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari, proposed collaboration for the nation’s stability.
