Pakistan Election Poll: Another independent member joins Nawaz Sharif's party, race to form government continues among political parties

After victory in the general elections, another independent candidate joined the PML-party on Monday. A day before this also, an independent candidate had joined Nawaz Sharif's party. 

The complete results of voting for the general elections held on February 8 in Pakistan have been revealed. No single party has got absolute majority. Whereas, for the first time in the history of the country, the highest number of independent candidates have been elected to the National Assembly. PML-N and PPP are trying to form a coalition government after the hung election results. At the same time, after the election results, some independent members are joining the party of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. In this series, on Monday another newly elected independent member joined PML-N.  

Earlier too, an independent member joined PML-N.

A day earlier, another independent member supported by Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party had joined Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). So far, two independent members of the National Assembly have joined PML-N. Army's interference in Pakistan's politics is not hidden from anyone. In such a situation, many political analysts believe that inclusion of independent members in PML-N could be a part of the army's strategy.
