Independent candidates affiliated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) have announced their intention to join the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) as a unified party.

During a press conference held in Islamabad on Monday afternoon, PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan announced that independent candidates, who were elected through mutual agreement, would officially join forces with the SIC.

Claiming that they’ve won 180 seats in the National Assembly (NA), Barrister Gohar highlighted that independent candidates joined the SIC because of the conditions they faced during the elections.


“The conditions under which the candidates fought are also in front of everyone,” stated Barrister Gohar, alluding to the challenges faced by PTI’s candidates, including the absence of an official election symbol.
