ISLAMABAD - 20 MPAs-elect from Punjab have formally joined ranks of cricket-turned-politician Imran Khan.
Furthermore, Pervez Elahi-led Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) has also pledged alliance to Khan. As per these developments, party’s tally in Punjab has soared to 151, two more than the magical figure of simple majority.
With 129 seats in Punjab Assembly, PML-N enjoys slander lead over PTI but inclusion of independent lawmakers have swung the political battle in latter’s favor.
It would be suffice here to say that Khan-led PTI will form government in the Punjab for the first time in country’s recorded history.
