In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we take a look at the impact of former foreign minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s decision to resign from the Pakistan Peoples Party and the National Assembly.
Gibran Peshimam, news editor, the Express Tribune, explains Qureshi’s electoral significance and the impact his resignation will have on the PPP.
Peshimam says if Qureshi were to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), he would change the electoral map in 2013, impacting both the PPP and the PML-N.
He explains Qureshi’s vote bank and his powerful personal following is based not only by his charisma and charm but his landowning lineage as well.
