LAHORE, Pakistan: The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Executive Committee on Monday decided to play a role of an effective opposition in legislatures, apparently parting away with Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal Pakistan (MMAP) on which platform it had earlier announced not to take oaths in assemblies and launch protests.

In its meeting held at JI Headquarters in Mansoora, Lahore, it was decided that an opportunity would be given to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the Centre as they wanted to see how much Imran Khan implemented on his commitment he had made in his victory speech and 100-day plan.


Later addressing a Press Conference, the Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Senator Sirajul Haq said holding of general elections on time was a good omen, adding the people fully participated in elections. He said MMAP received over 2.5 million votes in elections 2018.

However, he added, influence was used to change politicians’ loyalties, and massive irregularities were witnessed from Karachi to Dir. He said the role of the Election Commission, the Caretaker government and State Institutions was suspicious.

Senator Sirajul Haq said they always struggled for democracy in the Country. He said they wanted to give an opportunity to new government to work for the Country.
