Former Senate Chairman Mian Muhammad Soomro joins PTI: Sources

ISLAMABAD: Former Senate Chairman Mian Muhammad Soomro on Thursday joined Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Soomro will formally announce his joining in coming days. Meanwhile, former Federal Minister Sikandar Bosan is also expected to announce his joining in the PTI in the forthcoming days.

Previously, senior politicians Sardar Ghulam Abbas and Zulfiqar Khosa joined PTI last week.

Abbas, who quit Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz last month, met PTI chairman Imran Khan and announced his inclusion in the party. Senior leader Jahangir Tareen was also present at the meeting.

Abbas, who is considered among the most influential politicians in Chakwal, had quit PML-N following Nawaz Sharif’s controversial interview to a publication, in which the party leader had made remarks regarding the Mumbai attack trial sparking a political storm in the country. He had garnered more than 0.1 million votes as an independent contestant from Chakwal in the last general elections, held in 2013.
