In a major development, caretaker Information Minister Murtaza Solangi Tuesday met Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shafqat Mahmood to evolve a consensus on the upcoming general elections and ease the prevailing tense political environment in the country.

The PTI, in a statement, said the meeting was held at the “request of Solangi” at the residence of Mahmood, a senior party leader who served as the education minister under Imran Khan.

During the meeting, Mahmood told Solangi that the effectiveness of elections depends on their free, fair, impartial, and transparent conduct.

“For free, fair, impartial and transparent elections, provision of equal environment and equal opportunities to all parties to participate in elections is fundamental,” he said.


Mahmood complained that his party was not being allowed to conduct electioneering compared to other political parties.

In a statement after the off camera meeting, the caretaker minister said he met Mahmood as he was an “old friend”.

“I made it clear that this was just a meeting with an old friend. I meet people from all walks of life and political parties. These meetings do not involve politics,” the interim minister added.
