Ijazul Haq denies PML-Z merger with PTI!

Pakistan Muslim League-Zia (PML-Z) President Ijazul Haq has clarified to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that his party has not merged with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). 

Ijaz, the son of former army chief General Ziaul Haq, in reply to a recent letter written to him by the electoral body on May 05 about his party’s status and intra-party elections for the forthcoming general elections, clarified that he had a meeting with PTI Chairman Imran Khan and the media wrongly inferred from it carried reports of a merger, which was wrong.

“The party may have an election alliance with PTI in the next election but no merger has taken place and the news reports regarding it have no substance,” Haq was quoted as having written to the electoral body. The ECP had sent a letter to Ijaz ul Haq seeking clarifications.

The media reports issued on March 19, claimed that Ijazul Haq formally joined the PTI after having a meeting with Imran Khan in Lahore.

However, Ijazul Haq did not deny the news at that time.
