Sattar mulls joining PTI, contesting NA-247

The development comes in the wake of Sattar’s confirming that he is weighing up an offer to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Sattar lost the NA-247 seat to PTI candidate Dr Arif Alvi during the July 25 polls.

The seat has now been vacated by Alvi after being elected president. Sattar said PTI leaders had reached out to him with an invitation to join the party. “They want me to contest from Alvi’s seat. I am consulting with close aides,” Sattar told the media.
