MQM Pakistan has decided to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in forming the federal government, it emerged on Wednesday.
MQM-P convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui has confirmed his party’s leaning after the results of the General Election 2018.
“The Pakistan Peoples’ Party does not need anyone in Sindh. The MQM-P will sit alongside the PTI on government benches,” he said.
Earlier in the day, the PPP had told the MQM-P that it must make a choice between joining the federal government and Sindh government.
The MQM-P clinched 16 seats in the Sindh Assembly in the July 25 general election, and has six seats in the National Assembly.
