In the ongoing Pakistan election, candidates supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are currently leading, surpassing the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), prompting discussions on strategies for a coalition government. Despite allegations of horse-trading, there have been noteworthy developments, such as the PTI-backed candidate Waseem Qadir from Lahore joining the PML-N on Sunday.
Waseem Qadir, a former member of the PML-N, declared his allegiance to the former ruling party after a meeting with Maryam Nawaz in the provincial capital. He expressed confidence in the leadership of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, citing consultations with the people and constituents as the basis for his decision.
It’s noteworthy that Waseem Qadir secured victory in NA-121 in Lahore, defeating PML-N candidate Sheikh Rohail Asghar. As the political landscape unfolds, the move of a PTI-backed candidate aligning with the PML-N underscores the dynamic nature of alliances and affiliations in the post-election scenario. The ongoing discussions on coalition strategies indicate the potential for collaborative governance in the aftermath of the election results.
