Funny enough PTI is moaning on these reserved seats but forgetting how they got these seats in 2018.
Just to remind some of our members here. Despite a setback PML-N was still the largest party in Punjab during Election 2018 with 164 seats followed by PTI with 159 seats. There were sizeable number of independent MNAs who were asked by election commission to join the party of their choice.
PTI tasked Jahangeer Tareen to convince these independent MNAs joined PTI and his famous jet played a key role in these visits across Punjab. The number of reserved seats were decided on the basis of final count when they were given a lot more reserved seats than PML-N as independent candidates had joined PTI.
The bottom line is PTI couldn't have get these many reserved seats on the basis of election and if I am not wrong ended up getting 28 reserved seats compared to PML-N’s 16-22 as I don't remember the exact number now.
What's wrong in that?
Independents have ALWAYS been wooed by the party in power and joined the govt, 2008, 2013, every single election. Even in the 90's.
