Ajmal Jami in “Nuqta-e-Nazar” covered these topics:
• The party of jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, runner-up in the July 25 Pakistani general election, has called for an official investigation into the vote, claiming it was rigged.
• On July 29, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) demanded the formation of a “judicial commission” to investigate the results of the election, which gave victory to former cricketer Imran Khan’s Tehrik-e Insaf (PTI), although without enough parliamentary seats to form a government.
• It’s obvious that the number game is in the favour of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to make the next federal government, but interestingly the party would have to leave as many as six national assembly seats before the vote count for the Leader of the House (Prime Minister).
• PTI leads the national assembly tally with 116 seats. Trailing is the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) with 64 seats and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) with 43 seats. The alliance of religious parties, Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), bagged 13 NA seats, tying with 13 independents who also won the seats.
• Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Pervaiz Khattak is going to become chief minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa once again.
“The party has made the final decision. They can announce it whenever they want,” he said.
Khattak further shared that he is getting a second chance to serve the people of KP, adding that the party will fulfil all its promises.
