LAHORE: In a major political shift, Ali Nawaz Awan, a former member of the National Assembly associated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has officially parted ways with the party.
Awan has announced his decision to join the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) after meeting with Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan, who welcomed him into the party.
Awan is not the only PTI leader who has left the party and joined the IPP. The IPP has attracted many PTI deserters, including former federal ministers Fawad Chaudhry, Amir Kiyani, Ali Zaidi, Imran Ismail, Firdous Ashiq Awan, Ajmal Wazir, Nauraiz Shakoor and Fayyazul Hasan Chohan.
The IPP claims to have the support of more than 50 former PTI lawmakers in the national and provincial assemblies.
The IPP was founded by Jahangir Tareen on 8 June 2023. The IPP aims to bring political and economic reforms, end social divisions, and fulfill the teachings of Quaid-e-Azam.
The party was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on 5 October 2023 and was allotted the eagle as its electoral symbol.
