Former caretaker interior minister Sarfraz Bugti Monday joined the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) just days after he resigned from office — a legal requirement to contest polls.

“Respected leader Asif Ali Zardari came to Turbat and directed me to join PPP,” Bugti told the party’s workers convention in Turbat in the presence of the PPP co-chairman and other leaders, as he expressed delight to be entering into the general elections with PPP’s support.

The general elections will take place on February 8, 2024, after much fear of them being delayed again, but the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) issued the polling schedule on the Supreme Court orders, ending worries to an extent on the issue.
