Election alliance expected between Imran Khan and Pervez Musharraf
Political parties are adjusting their positions in line with the prevailing scenario, and it seems like some significant political developments could be witnessed before the upcoming general elections.
Reports suggest that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman, Imran Khan, and All Pakistan Muslim League chief, Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf, are expected to join hands in order to win maximum number of seats in National Assembly and emerge as one of the major political force in the country.
PTI has emerged as one of the most popular political party in recent times while Musharraf’s party is also not far behind. However, one of the main concerns for both the parties is the lack of quality candidates available on Provincial as well as on National Assembly level.
Imran is on the visit of United States to attend his Party’s procession. According to sources, Musharraf and the PTI chief are busy in forging a political alliance through their mutual friends in U.S.
Dr Arjumand Freed Hashmi (Mayor of Paris, Texas), who is a close friend and physician of the former President of Pakistan, is reportedly trying to break a deal between the two political parties’ leaders. Reports suggest that the likely alliance between the two parties is expected to be election specific.
Sources reveal that Imran met with Dr. Arjumand at his residence along with Dr. Zai after attending his Party’s procession in Dallas. Reports confirm that the Mayor invited Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief to dinner, who stayed there overnight.
When approached by media personals, Dr. Arjumand confirmed that the meeting took place at his house. However, he denied about any telephonic conversation between Imran and Musharraf during the whole time.
