LAHORE: Putting an end to rumours of joining Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) , Marvi Memon has picked Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) over the tsunami and will formally announce her decision on Sunday.
Memon is an ex-MNA and former member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid.
An SMS from Dr Asif Kirmani, Nawaz Sharif’s political secretary, states that Memon will meet the party chief in Raiwand tomorrow and will make the announcement at a press conference around 10:30am.
The decision brings an end to much speculation on which political party Marvi Memon will join after she quit PML-Q. There had been speculation that she might join Imran Khan’s PTI after she attended a couple of high-profile party events.
Memon was also present at the PTI rally in Ghotki where former foreign minister and ex-Pakistan Peoples Party leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi had announced that he was joining the party.
It had been reported that after her resignation in June last year, PML-N and PTI had approached Memon to join their ranks.
Memon has been a vocal campaigner for human rights and development, both during her tenure as MNA and after her resignation, and she has taken up several high-profile cases, including the Airblue crash in 2010. She is a vociferous critic of the current government and its policies and tends to take a populist stance on issues.
