Naz Baloch joins PPP, parts ways with PTI

17 Juillet 2017

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) former leader Naz Baloch joined Pakistan People's Party (PPP) officially in a press briefing on Sunday.

Soon after defecting to PPP, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari welcomed Naz through the microblogging site.

Baloch said that her father had worked alongside the likes of PPP founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and that she was "returning home".

"When Imran Khan comes to Karachi for his five or six-hour-long visits, he is kept away from the party workers".

"I tried to convince Imran Khan that he must focus [the attention of his party] in Karachi and other parts of Sindh, but he did not pay heed". She was affiliated with PTI for the last seven years and was considered one of the staunch supporters of the party.

Du côté de la L1, Rennes se serait également penché sur son cas, mais sans la moindre suite pour le moment. Personne n'en doutait vraiment, mais Loïc Rémy va bel et bien quitter Chelsea pendant l'intersaison.

Baloch said that she had rendered countless services for protest sit-in of the party in the past but at the moment she was not in the mood of doing mud-slinging on her parent political party. "I have made complaints about what I feel is male chauvinism in the party; only men are present when it is time to make decisions". "It is only party policies and its direction that I am against and is the main reason of my decision to quit the party", she further said.

She advised the PTI chief Imran Khan to save whatever party had been left with him. She contested from NA-240 constituency in 2013 general elections and was the women from her constituency. "My services being a daughter of Karachi under the leadership of Imran Khan are not a secret to anyone", she said. "Everything I have done has been for Pakistan", she told a questioner. Her father Abdullah Baloch was a member of the PPP but she instead chose to join the PTI. "The party, which championed the youth and called for change, has, itself, changed", Naz Baloch said.

Naz Baloch was a central vice president of PTI.

When asked about the National Accountability Ordinance 1999 that was repealed by the Sindh Assembly, the chief minister said: "After the 18th Amendment, provincial assemblies are mandated to make laws". "Women do not have the same access or representation in the decision-making committee", she said.
