News by:

Race is on for the slot of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) chief minister as former CM Pervaiz Khattak may not be allowed to leave his precious National Assembly seat which PTI may need badly to form government in the Centre.
Well-placed sources in PTI told The News that lobbying for the prized post in KP is at peak and a group of over a dozen MPs-elect from KP led by a prominent PTI leader from KP met PTI chief Imran Khan in Banigala on Friday and stressed Khan to continue Pervaiz Khattak as CM. “The MPs-elect were told by the PTI chief that the decision would be taken at party level and that he won’t tolerate such kind of pressure tactics in future�, the sources added.
