Following Shah Mahmood Qureshi's announcement that he had quit the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), it seems that PTI is in the lead to secure his signature.

Beaming on the Express 24/7 show Witness with Quatrina (due to air on Monday, November 14 at 10pm), Khan said that he hoped that Qureshi  would join the PTI given that Khan and Qureshi had been talking with each other for a long time.

Imran Khan said that a politician like Shah Mahmood Qureshi  would fit the profile of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.

"He [Qureshi ] fits in what I expect a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf office bearer to be."

Earlier in the day, former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi announced his resignation from his post in the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the National Assembly on Monday.

While talking to the media outside the Parliament House, Qureshi said that even though the police and all the relevant agencies were under the government, the murderers of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto had still not been captured. He said that the people who turned their backs on former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto can now be seen sitting in the National Assembly.

The Express Tribune had earlier reported that it was expected that Qureshi was expected to announce his decision to join the PTI after a rally in Kashmore.

Sources had confided that Qureshi was expected to resign his membership to the National Assembly before he joins the party. Furthermore, he is also expected to make an official announcement during a rally being held in Kashmore on November 27.

A spokesperson for the PTI said that Qureshi had met PTI Chairman Imran Khan before Eidul Azha and is expected to join the party soon.
