PTI claims to have mustered support of 174 members in center

Khan's PTI claims enough support to form Pakistan government

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday finalised teams to form governments in the Centre as well as in the provinces.

Apart from the Japanese ambassador, the British envoy and other foreign dignitaries have also visited the PTI chief in recent days.

All major political parties, except the PTI, have been claiming since July 25 that the polls were massively rigged.

Talking to media persons, the former army chief said, "Imran Khan will feel strangulated just like the earlier prime ministers of their country went through".

The PTI has 116 seats in Parliament and has to secure 137 to form government.

The PTI won 123 seats in Punjab and its tally has reached 144, and the required number for a simple majority in the provincial assembly is 149 legislators.

But all opposition parties announced that they will field candidates for the office of the prime minister, speaker and deputy speaker in the National Assembly. BNP president Sardar Akhtar Mengal put forward six demands, including a "solid assurance from Imran Khan about the recovery of missing persons from the province and putting an end to enforced disappearances by the future government" in return for his party's support at the Centre.

Further after the support of Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M), the party will have 177 seats, Chaudhry said. The MQM-P will be given portfolios of Ministry of Ports and Shipping and Ministry of Labour and Manpower.

The agreement was signed by MQM-P's Faisal Sabzwari and PTI leader Arif Alvi.

Pakistan Muslim League is likely to get 14 reserved seats for women while Pakistan People Party is likely to get 9 seats in NA.
