LAHORE - In a first such development after years, a sitting MPA Wajih-uz-Zaman Khan joined Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) on Saturday.

The MPA, who was recently part of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, and his allies met PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat at his residence in Islamabad.

Wajih-uz-Zaman was elected from Mansehra on a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz ticket but was expelled from the PML-N in 2015 on disciplinary grounds. However, the MPA claimed he voluntarily left the party one and a half years ago as party leaders “didn’t listen” to him.

The disgruntled leader then joined the PTI, but part ways with the party today saying, “No PTI representative in KP is following the party’s ideology.”
