QUETTA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to support Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) candidate in the Senate election due on January 14. The seat fell vacant after the death of Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP)’s Sardar Babar Musakhel.

In a statement on Friday, PTI’ deputy parliamentary leader and Health Minister Mir Naseebullah Marri said on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan the PTI has decided to vote for BAP candidate in by-election for Senate seat.

“Being a coalition partner of BAP in federal and provincial level, we will support BAP’s candidate in Senate by-election as PTI seeks to strengthen relations with all coalition partners,” said Mari.

He also said that the PM had clear directions regarding party’s support for BAP candidate in the election.

“The PTI and the BAP have been making their earnest efforts to resolve public issues on federal and provincial level because we want to maintain public trust they reposed in us in general elections,” Marri said, adding that politicians believe in democracy and work with political ideology to resolve public issues.
