PTI founder rules out possibility of forming coalition govt with PML-N, PPP, MQM-P
RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan on Tuesday nominated former federal minister Ali Amin Gandapur as his party’s candidate for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s chief minister.
“KP’s chief minister will be Ali Amin Gandapur,” said the former prime minister while speaking to journalists in Adiala jail, where he is currently incarcerated in a number of cases.
Khan, whose party secured 84 seats in the KP assembly is in a pole position to form the government. In the National Assembly, PTI-backed candidates emerged as the largest group with over 90 seats followed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) which won 75 seats.
The PTI founder also brushed off the possibility of forming a coalition government with PML-N, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).
However, Khan said that he had directed his party leaders to hold talks with other parties except these three. “Those who have been brought [to rule] are the biggest money launderers,” he added.
The former premier said that the general elections, which were held on February 8, will bring economic stability to the country.
According to sources, Khan gave instructions to the PTI regarding the KP’s CM and the former ruling party will issue a notification in this regard soon.
