Pakistans "Alte Garde" Parteien kurz vor Deal, der Imran Khan ausschließt

February 12, 2024 - Die von zwei großen familien-kontrollierten politischen Parteien in Pakistan rücken enger zusammen, sie wollen eine Koalitionsregierung bilden, die Anhänger des im Gefängnis sitzenden ex-PM Imran Khan von der Regierungsbeteilung ausschließt.

The parties of the Sharif and Bhutto clans “agreed in principle to save the country from political instability,” according to a statement posted on X last night by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif.

The scenario would be a closing of ranks by Pakistan’s old guard after Khan’s loyalists – running as independents – defied the odds with a strong performance in Thursday’s election, showing the public’s enduring support for Khan and disillusionment with the status quo. It could also lead to more protests and unrest across the country, Bloomberg said.
