Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has nominated a total of seven people from his party for holding negotiations with the incumbent government.

The team includes the party’s Senior Vice President Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former federal minister Hammad Azhar, former National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser, Murad Saeed and others.

According to PTI, the team will discuss the matter of elections with the government.


After the recent string of PTI leaders leaving the party, Khan expressed willingness to negotiate with “anyone who is in power”.

However, the government does not seem willing to hold talks with the embattled PTI.

Before the May 9 riots, several rounds of talks took place between PTI and the government to decide on the matter of elections but no fruitful result came out.

‘It is an appeal for NRO, not dialogue’: Govt doesn’t want to hold talks with Imran

Earlier, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb clearly stated that no talks Khan will take place.

Stating that those who attacked the state must be punished, she said that talks aren’t held with such people. “It is an appeal for NRO, not dialogue”, the minister said.

Pointing out that Imran had realised the importance of talks only after his party had been shattered, she said, “Now you are saying that you want to hold talks after torching schools, hospitals and ambulances?”

She also accused Imran of poisoning the minds of youth by spreading chaos in the country.
