LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) have decided to give a final shape to seat adjustment between the two parties throughout the country in the upcoming elections, within three days.

This was decided at a meeting between the leaders of both parties at the residence of PTI chief Imran Khan on Sunday.

Ameer JI Syed Munawar Hasan led his party delegation in the meeting with their PTI counterparts.

The seat adjustment will be made in light of committee reports from both sides at the provincial level.

Talking to the media on the occasion, Imran Khan said that there was no other party other than the Jamaat-i-Islami that could be relied upon.

He said that Syed Munawar Hasan and his team comprised of honest people who had played the role of a real opposition during the last five years.

Imran Khan said that the PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had a major role in the completion of the five-year term by the Zardari government as he had even compromised the country's sovereignty for his turn in power with the PPP.

"Both the parties have plundered national wealth and driven the masses to starvation," he added.

Munawar Hasan told newsmen on the occasion that in order to make Pakistan corruption free, the rulers must be corruption free themselves.

He said that Imran Khan had lit the light of hope and given new courage to the people.

Hasan said the JI had been in touch with Imran Khan and PTI for a long time and the two had often discussed matters concerning the welfare and betterment of the people.

The JI chief said that the two parties had decided to join hands for steering the country out of its current problems.
