JI ‘conditionally’ agrees to pull out nominee from NA-246
Sources privy to the development have claimed that Jamaat e Islami has agreed to pull out its candidate Rashid Naseem from NA-246 by-election in favor of Tehreek-i-Insaf.
However, no formal announcement has so far been made by the leadership of any of the two allied parties.
Earlier, Jamaat e Islami had conveyed a message to PTI to withdraw its candidate Imran Ismail in the run for NA-246 seat.
PTI leadership reportedly held consultation regarding the matter at the residence of Dr Arif Alvi, earlier in the evening.
However, it is now reported that JI has given a conditional nod to pull out Rashid Naseem, vacating the battleground for Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Muttahida Qaumi Movement.
