Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen on Sunday disclosed that the party is in contact with several MPAs-elect [member of provincial assembly] of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

While addressing a presser along with leaders of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), Tareen claimed that several MPAs-elect of Shehbaz Sharif’s party may vote for PTI in the Punjab Assembly for speaker, deputy speaker and chief minister’s slots.

Speaking on the occasion, PML-Q leader and Punjab Assembly Speaker-designate Pervez Elahi regretted that former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif had not left even a single institution in order.

Elahi vowed to work with PTI for the welfare of the masses of the Punjab. Meanwhile, Caretaker Prime Minister Nasirul Mulk recommended August 13 for the first session of the National Assembly whereas Imran Khan is expected to take oath as Pakistan’s new Prime Minister on August 8.

On the other hand, PTI’s tally in NA has augmented to 158 after Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) allotted reserved seats for women and minorities. Taking into account the numbers of coalition partners, PTI is well in position to form government in the Centre.
