    The momentum is slowly building. PTI is on the rise and is building a base in karachi – which is crucial. I think Imran Khan will join a coalition only if he is leader though. The All Pakistan Muslim League joining hands with PTI against PPP and PML-N.
    MQM would also join hands if Altaf agreed upon ceasing the violence in Karachi – very unlikely. Although they have similar agendas – MQM is not serious about implementing it.

    Imran Khan remains pakistan last hope for revival.Recommend

    Please all Pakistani citizens go to the polls and vote for PTI, no matter which candidate there is Imran khan hand picks his candidates. Just give PTI a chance, Nawaz and PPP need to go. MQM is good but too violent, PTI wants to fix the justice system and corruption and thats all you need. MQM supporters, vote PTI they are more just than MQM and you will have a better future under PTI than MQMRecommend

    MQM without Altaf should be acceptable to Imran Khan. But may be this is asking for too much from MQM. IK is definitely the last hope for Pakistan.Recommend

    I foresee a formidable political alliance under the leadership of Imran Khan which might include smaller nationalist parties from Sind and Balochistan giving a touch fight to THE big boys like PPP and PMLN. In Lahore and other Urban Centres of Punjab PTI will definitely spring up huge electoral surprises and is like to sweep the elections in KPK. In Balochistan and Sind the party is weak but by making alliances with smaller parties can take 4-6 seats. In Punjab I would be hugely disappointed if PTI gets any thing less than 30 seats since around 70 to 80% youth is with Imran Khan and if the party succeeds in creating wave among youth and mobilize this largest segment of our society, no one could stop the march of PTI.Recommend
