“They asked me ‘how many seats do you want?’ but I declined the offer.”
“They asked me to pinpoint the seats I wanted, I responded I do not need the seats.”
The General Elections were held on July 25 this year with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) emerging victorious. The TLP failed to win any National Assembly seats but succeeded in winning two provincial assembly seats from Karachi.
