PTI Supports PkMAP Candidates in Balochistan By-Elections

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has declared its support for the Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) led by Mahmood Khan Achakzai in the upcoming by-elections in Balochistan. PTI Deputy Secretary General Khadim Hussain announced that PTI will endorse PkMAP’s candidates from PB-50 and PB-51 constituencies. PTI’s decision was made following discussions led by PTI founder Imran Khan and the party’s provincial leadership. Not only has PTI withdrawn its own candidates from these constituencies, but they will also actively campaign for PkMAP candidates.
