Ali Zaidi, president of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the province of Sindh, made it clear on Monday that his party does not accept the results of the LG elections and that an alliance with the Pakistan People’s Party is out of the question.
He accused political engineers of meddling in the most recent LG elections during an interview.
He claimed that PTI was running not just against the PPP, but against the entire Sindhi administration. According to him, the state machinery was deployed in the LG elections, and the Sindh government kept the residents in the dark about the elections till the very last.
Zaidi stated that the PTI had won a majority of seats, but that the results had been rigged in favour of the incumbent PPP.
He congratulated Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) on gaining a significant number of Karachi Local Government seats. Ali Zaidi stands by his claim that the nation ultimately decides the fate of the government.
Ali Zaidi stated that despite poor performance, the PPP does not deserve to win the Karachi local government elections. He dismissed any hope of a coalition between the PTI and the PPP forming a new municipal administration. He made it clear that all political parties, save the PPP, would be acceptable coalition partners for the PTI.
