Imran Khan Ready for Reconciliation Amidst 2024 Election Results

On Saturday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced its intention to form governments in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and the federal government in the Centre after independent candidates supported by the party secured a lead in the 2024 polls. PTI lawyer Umair Khan Niazi, speaking outside Adiala Jail, stated that PTI founder Imran Khan had decided to establish governments in the mentioned regions.

Umair Khan Niazi, also the newly-elected Member of the National Assembly (MNA) from Mianwali, mentioned that Imran Khan urged the authorities not to let Nawaz Sharif form a coalition government, citing past failures. Imran Khan is reportedly focused on moving past political instability for the country’s future. Candidates defeated through alleged rigging were instructed by the PTI founder to protest on the streets in their constituencies.

To implement their government formation plan, the PTI’s core committee met, assigning Umair Niazi to coordinate with federal-level candidates, while Ali Amin Gandapur and Mian Aslam Iqbal were tasked with approaching elected lawmakers in KP and Punjab, respectively. PTI leaders, including chairman Gohar Ali Khan, held a press conference in the federal capital, expressing hope that President Arif Alvi would invite the party to form the government as the “largest single party.”

However, it was noted that the president cannot make such an invitation at this point, according to Article 91. The National Assembly must convene, and after the election of the speaker and deputy speaker, the leader of the house (prime minister) will be elected.

During the press conference, PTI leaders raised reservations about the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and urged a fresh compilation of results based on Form-45. Barrister Gohar claimed the PTI had 170 seats and vowed to explore legal options for the delayed final results. He emphasized the ECP’s responsibility for transparent result compilation and alleged attempts to turn PTI victories into defeats.

Gohar stated that the PTI had a “clear majority” with victories on 170 National Assembly seats, according to Form-47 issued by the ECP. He mentioned historical wins in KP and accused attempts to manipulate results in some constituencies. The PTI announced plans to form political alliances for reserved seats and warned of peaceful but strong protests if delayed or tampered results were not promptly addressed. Gohar responded to Nawaz Sharif’s speech on Feb 9, disputing his claim to the prime ministership and emphasizing the legality of final results extracted from Form-45.
