PESHAWAR: Pervez Khattak, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) nominated chief minister in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, said they have gotten the coalition partners to agree on forming a government in the province on Thursday.

“Establishing peace, ending corruption and immediately conducting local bodies election will be the top priorities of our government,” Khattak said in a joint press conference with coalition partners Jamat Islami (JI) and Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) leaders.

Implementing uniform education system throughout the province, providing better health facilities in government hospitals and reforms in police system will also be dealt on a priority basis, Khattak said.

PTI, JI and QWP have agreed to work on one agenda for the development of K-P and its people, he added.

“Imran Khan had personally asked us to form a coalition with PTI in the government,” said QWP central president Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao and JI Central naib Ameer Sirajul Haq.

"We had presented our agenda to PTI's senior leadership and it's only upon their agreement that we are announcing our partnership with the political party," Sherpao said.

“Our conditions were the rehabilitation of militancy affected people, establishment of a trust which will financially assist the affected families and the settlement of the issue of net-hydel profit with federal government,” Sherpao said.

On whether PTI plans to halt NATO supply to the region, Khattak said the issue will be discussed in the assembly and will be decided upon accordingly.

Earlier, PTI had staged protests against the NATO supply line and had asked the then Awami National Party (ANP) government to halt it.

First of all, the Drone attacks issue would be raised in the National Assembly as the FATA is administered by the Federal Government not by the Provincial Government, and PTI is in opposition in the NA, so it would probably raise the point there, Second point is for the knowledge of just_someone PTI has retained education ministry with itself, JI has only finance, and Ushr zakat ministries, and JI is not party of the illiterates, for your kind information information they are all the highly educated and well organised people, but I am sure are not from KPK thats you can make such lame judjement. And at the end, its a request to all, for God sake, avoid your so called judgement, just wait for their government formation and the see how they implement their policies. Thanks.

Question is .... Would you table the resolution in the assembly to stop NATO supply line with immediate effect ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE SESSION??

Considering your pre election stance and noises that is what you should do and execute.
