ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will not make an alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) because they are “status quo parties,” said PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Monday.
Speaking during a press conference in Islamabad, Imran added that PTI will not make an alliance with any party that has been supporting the present government.
“By being a coalition partner, MQM is protecting Pakistan’s most corrupt government,” Imran said.
The PTI chairman further said that the PML-N has damaged Pakistan by performing like a “friendly opposition.”
Without taking any names, Imran said many members of different political parties have asked him if he would accept them into his party. “We [PTI] told them that we cannot because they don’t fit in,” he said.
Earlier during the Liaquat Bagh rally, Imran said PTI’s popularity had risen to 33% in Punjab according to a popularity survey conducted by an international organisation.
