Jahangir Khan Tareen, the disgruntled former leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and former confidante of PTI Chairman Imran Khan, credited with helping form the 2018 government, has formally established the “Istehkam-e-Pakistan” political party on Thursday in Lahore.

Former PTI leaders Imran Ismail, Aleem Khan and Ali Zaidi were also present at the press conference to announce the launch.
The party comprises of more than 100 former National Assembly members and leaders of PTI.


“During my long journey in politics, I got the opportunity to meet and work with several people. I learned a lot from this experience,” said Tareen while addressing a press conference.

He said he joined the PTI because he was confident the party would “implement all the reforms that Pakistan needed and still needs”.

Tareen further said that the events of May 9 have changed the politics of Pakistan.
