While referring to the victory of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in the local government elections in Sindh, Provincial Minister Saeed Ghani said Monday that the people of Karachi reposed their trust in the PPP, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, he said that the PPP had won the local bodies’ elections in Karachi in the past too.
“The PPP has always solved the problems of Karachi. The PPP will win the general elections too from Karachi,” he added.
Saeed Ghani said that the candidate of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for the seat of mayor had lost.
He added that there could be talks with Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). “The JI has won many seats. We will talk to them.”
He, however, declared that the PPP did not have any intention to make an alliance with the PTI.
“We wanted Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) to participate in the elections,” the provincial minister stated.
“We want the mayor of Karachi to be elected democratically,” he emphasised.
“It is too early to say that PTI and the JI will form an alliance for the seat of the mayor,” he pointed out.
