PPP ready to form alliance with PTI

ISLAMABAD: 

Pakistan Peoples Party has finally made its mind to enter into an alliance with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to form the next government in order to continue the ongoing democratic process in the country.

The announcement for a possible alliance with any political party, including rival PTI, apparently came at a time when PPP’s top leadership sensed ‘tough electoral test’ in the May 11 general elections.

PPP Secretary General Sardar Latif Khan Khosa revealed on Thursday that his party could form an alliance with any political party to form the next government ‘for the best of democracy’, but the premier would be from his party.

“Nothing is impossible in politics – PPP can go for an alliance with PTI,” Khosa told The Express Tribune after addressing a press conference at PPP Central Secretariat Islamabad.

“Our alliance with MQM, PML-Q and ANP is still intact,” Khosa claimed.

In his first interaction with journalists after assuming the office of Secretary General, he claimed that if PPP came into power again it would produce over 12,000MW electricity to overcome the energy crisis.

Pointing out parties whose public gatherings were not being targeted by the militants, he alleged that these parties were being backed by terrorists, and even facilitated to promote their agenda.

“The upcoming polls have drawn a clear-cut line between two schools of thought in political parties – the moderate and the conservative,” he said, urging the nation to reject these parties as terrorism had already pushed the country into a blind alley.

Without explaining why the PPP top leadership was absent from public gatherings, Khosa claimed his party will grab 40 percent votes while the rest would take the other 60 percent.

Criticising his political opponents, he said that former premier Benazir Bhutto injected new political life in Sharif brothers when the two signed the Charter of Democracy in 2007, and added that Nawaz Sharif’s pardon to then President Rafique Tarrar, before going to Saudi Arabia, was his political death.

Counting achievements of his party, he said President Zardari is the first president who transferred his powers to the executive.

A strong PTI will favour PPP: Gilani

Meanwhile, former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said that a strong PTI would benefit his party, the PPP, and that he wishes the PTI a long life.

In an interview, Gilani said that there has been no relief to the people in Punjab, a fact which had increased the popularity of the PTI.

    In a diverse country like Pakistan the only solution is to form a coalition govt of top elected parties no matter who they are. To be a democrat one has to have an open mind. If no party gets majority then the only solution is that top vote getters from each province be included in the govt.

    At the moment it is not likely for any party to have majority in the comming election and ultimately the different parties would join hands to form the government at the central as well as at the provincial level. As per my assessment, it will be better for PTI and PML-N to joint hands in collaboration with JI to form the government. However, it seems impossible between the PTI and PML-N as both the parties have been involving in blame game against each other, which is not a good sign for democracy as well as for the public interest. However nothing is impossible in the politics of our country. Chances are there for the three parties to form the government with the Imran Khan in the Premiership.

    If one of the former two big parties would have been thought sensibly to make seat adjustment with JI throughout Pakistan, it was quite possible in KPK, Punjab, Baluchistan, FATA sweeping the result. However, both the parties were compelled to adjust the expatriates from other parties by granting tickets without making forecasting the result on 11 May. Now still chances are there for JI to win all the provincial seats of Lower and Uppor Dir, Buner, Malakand and some seats from FATA, Federal Capital and Karachi to help JI part of the Federal Government either with PTI or PML-N. At the provincial level, the government in KPK and Sindh will not be possible for a single party to form the government without the help of JI.

    @Mirza , Why it has to be “top vote getters”, in a democratic process any party who got the most votes aka seats should rule any other parties should sit in opposition and hence come for and against the sitting govt based on the principles. People like you promote shameless party alliances which are always based upon “Give & Take”, hence never produce results. Similarly in alliance govts many parties run away with excuse that other party never let them execute their agenda (MQM is prime example in such case). Therefore, a strong opposition and winning party making government is only solution.

    I don’t know whether Khosa’s statement is right or wrong.
    But nothing can be over-ruled.
    Imran has taken so much u turns in his career. so it cannot be over-ruled.

    Nice to see PPP admitting defeat even before the polls are open! By the way, has PPP ever said how they were going to pay for the additional 12,000 MW of electricity? Since they have not been able to pay for what is already produced I would be interested to know what their new strategy would be. Anyone??

    Metro Bus System is a project of 30 billion.
    PPP says : It is 70 billion. PTI says : It is 70 billion. Q League says : It is 70 billion.
    PPP says: It is Jangal Bus. PTI says: It is Jangal Bus. Q League says: It is Jangal Bus.
    What a co-incidence.
    Imran is supporting those who ruined my country during last 5 years.
    BAT AND ARROW ARE SITTING ON CYCLE.
    PPP and Q League do not utter a single word against Imran.
    It is all a secret alliance between these 3. MQM is also there against PML-N. Imran wants to split vote bank of PML-N to help Zardari and Q League in Punjab.
    I request my brothers and sisters to please be careful and vote in favour of LION.

    How Shah Mehmood can say that there is no such alliance? How can he go against party policy?

    vs
    PPP + PTI + PML(q) + MQM
    Where is PTI’s ideology? Great politics of all parties against PML-N. Public will reject all these nooras and PML-N alone is enough for them. What a change (tabdeeli)?
    PML-N all the way.

    Imran is making all possible personal attacks on Sharif Brothers through unethical and abusive language in public rallies.
    PPP is doing personal attacks through fraud advertisements on TV channels.
    Both are united and doing all possible acts for personal attacks.

    For all those who are supporting PTI and thinks that this allaince would never happen…… Open your eyes and see that a silent alliance is already in developing. PTI from NA 56 has made a seat adjustment with PPP and lets not forget that Imran Khan himself is contesting the election from NA 56. Hope that PTI supporter would now understand that PTI = PPP.

    On the other hand when Moonis Elahi also advises his voters to vote for PTI. So much for the change. The Junoon is effectively driving both PTI leadership and supporters blind to their principal. Personal attacks and abusive language have become their hallmark. They cant accept any opposing voice, they can’t accept that their leadership has played no different to mainstream parties. Almost of their >90% electable candidates have either come from PPP, N or Q And yet they have the audacity to chant change. Just have a look at the election stats and their smartness can be easily unveiled. Most of the new tickets have been awarded to candidates where PTI has weak profile. Where it could find an electable candidate, it overlooked their previous associations. If anybody can deny this, please come forward.
