LONDON -  Former president and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf has said that a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz win from the Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa is open to possibility.

Speaking to a press conference here on Monday, he said that Pakistan People’s Party and PML-N can win the next general elections. “There are 90 percent chances that PML-N wins from Punjab and PPP from Sindh,” he added.

He said that a political force is needed in Pakistan to defeat PPP and PML-N.

Responding over a question he said that Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan is correct in saying that a change is needed in Pakistan.

Recently, Pakistan Muslim League Quaid President Chaudhry Shujaat, in February, met with Gen (retd) Musharraf in Dubai and expressed combined resolve to move forward amicably in future.

According to PML-Q sources, in the meeting between the two coalition partners the current political situation of the country came under discussion. The two leaders also discussed framework for the upcoming elections in 2018.

Sources said that the leaders also talked about the grievances on both sides and decided to hold next round of talks with PML-Q leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi.

Shujaat Hussain upon his return will take into confidence his party leaders and devise future course of action, sources added.

The former president has been quite active regarding the country’s political horizon since a while.

In November 2016, an important meeting was held between Musharraf and representatives from MQM-Pakistan. MQM-Pakistan leader Khawaja Izhar met with the former president in Dubai and discussed the country’s political situation with an emphasis on Karachi.

Musharraf left the country in March this year for Dubai where he has already restarted his political activities. Musharraf, 70, is facing a number of high profile cases, including murder and high treason. He was indicted for treason last year over his imposition of emergency rule in 2007.
