PTI announces alliance with Sunni Ittehad Council, MWM


ISLAMABAD (INP): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Monday announced alliance with the Sunni Ittehad Council and Majlis-e-Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM).

The announcement was made by Barrister Gohar flanked by MWM chief Allama Raja Nasir Abbas, Sunni Ittehad Council’s head Sahibzada Hamid Raza and Omar Ayub Khan.

PTI leader Barrister Gohar Khan has said that party-backed independents, who emerged victorious on the National Assembly, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab assemblies’ seats, joined the Sunni Ittehad Council as a party.

The PTI leader said “Our candidates have submitted their affidavits to the party and with their consent today we are announcing that PTI-supported independents are joining the Sunni Ittehad Council.”

Gohar said the party has reached a “formal agreement” with the Sunni Ittehad Council and the same would be submitted to the Election Commission of Pakistan today.

“You know that there are 70 reserved seats in the National Assembly and there are 227 reserved seats in the entire country. These seats are only provided to political parties. Therefore, to protect our reserved seats and provide the cover to our members, we have reached a formal agreement under which all our candidates have joined the party and we will present this documentation before the ECP,” he said.

Gohar said a request will also be filed in the ECP regarding the allocation of reserved seats as per the party strength and law.
