Karachi Political Leaders Express Views on Upcoming Elections and Party Alliances

Karachi (TV Report) – Senior leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Mian Javed Latif, has said that if Bilawal Bhutto announces the election date in the morning, they will concede defeat. He emphasized that the PML-N and PPP were never allies, and they are currently planning for the elections in January-February. He also mentioned that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) agreed to the proposal for economic reforms and electoral changes.

Responding to Bilawal Bhutto’s statement about the mayoral elections in Karachi and Hyderabad, Mian Javed Latif stated that Karachi and Hyderabad have always rejected the PPP, and it seems that even those mayors whom they are not ready to accept in both cities are causing fear.

In response to Bilawal Bhutto’s statement, Deputy Convener of the MQM-Pakistan Anis Qaimkhani said it appears that Bilawal Bhutto has appointed his father for a new job.

Mian Javed Latif also highlighted the historical context of the PML-N’s relationship with other parties. He mentioned that the PML-N and PPP were never allies and that the national government was formed for sixteen months. The PML-N wanted early elections right after the vote of no confidence, but the PPP was interested in electoral reforms. He stated that at the time, one general was bargaining for extension, while the other was trying to make himself acceptable for the future.

He noted that the PPP was part of the joint committee on shared interests, and they knew that delimitation was necessary after the population census. He pointed out that the delay in elections would harm the PML-N the most, as the Pakistani nation is currently pinning its hopes on the PML-N.

Mian Javed Latif further discussed the issue of extension and how the events unfolded. He argued that if the extension had not been given in 2019, the country would not have faced this crisis. He mentioned that many political figures, including himself, were against the extension at that time.

The political landscape in Pakistan is becoming increasingly dynamic as various parties prepare for the upcoming elections. The statements from Mian Javed Latif and Anis Qaimkhani reflect the competition and positioning of political parties in the run-up to the elections.
