After the chaos of May 9th, the political tides have turned against former Prime Minister Imran Khan. Ever since the clampdown on PTI after the May 9 protests that were held following Imran Khan’s arrest, many leaders have parted ways with the party.

While some PTI defectors have decided to take a step back from politics, many are looking towards other political parties.

At least two-dozen PTI ticket holders met former president Asif Zardari and announced their joining of the PPP. Asif Zardari had held meetings with them and welcomed them to the party.

Meanwhile, dozens others have reportedly contacted former PTI leader Jehangir Tareen to join his ranks. It has been stated that Jehangir Tareen was forming his own political party amid speculations that those quitting the PTI would join him. According to sources close to Tareen, he was expected to announce the new party in a day or two.

The sources said that more than 60 lawmakers and the top PTI leaders have contacted the Tareen so far. Some of them, including Firdous Ashiq Awan and Zargul Khan, have held a meeting with him.

It has also been reported that former PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry and former minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan are also in close contact with Jahangir Tareen in Lahore.
