PTI to form govt in Punjab Assy, claims Fawad

The Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf on Monday said they would get the required number of seats by tonight and would form its government in Punjab.

His party PTI would get support of four more candidates, the Geo TV said on Monday quoting PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry.

The spokesperson said with their support, the total count of the PTI seats in the provincial assembly will reach 140. The party was also in touch with other independent candidates in Punjab. Sources said Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) is ready to make alliance with PTI. A PML-Q delegation is also scheduled to meet PTI chief Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence in the federal capital later in the day.

If the alliance happens, eight seats would add to PTI — seven candidates of PML-Q and one independent candidate who joined the party earlier. Currently, the party holds 134 seats in Punjab Assembly while the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) holds 139 seats. (UNI)
