Farooq Sattar likely to join PTI: Sources

KARACHI Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar is likely to join the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf after getting offer from the ruling party.

He on Thursday said he is consulting his close friends on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s offer to join the party.

A day earlier, Sattar had claimed that the PTI had offered him to join the party and contest the by-election on a National Assembly seat — NA-247, Karachi — that fell vacant after the resignation of president-elect Dr Arif Alvi.

Earlier today, the senior MQM-P leader filed a petition in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) regarding election expenses. link link

Speaking to the media outside the ECP, Sattar once again said that some PTI leaders have offered him to join the Prime Minister Imran Khan led party.

“I am consulting my close friends over the offer,” he added.

“PTI wants me to contest the by-election on NA-247 from Alvi's seat,” the MQM-P leader further said.
