Barrister Gohar Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has said on Monday afternoon that his party will prefer sitting in the opposition rather than talking to political rivals Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) about forming a coalition.

The statement comes as the other parties talk to independent winners and smaller parties to form a coalition government.

PTI – backed candidates still form the largest group in the National Assembly, however, it will have to partner with other parties to get the requisite number to form a government.
