RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan on Tuesday nominated former federal minister Ali Amin Gandapur as his party’s candidate for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s chief minister. 

“KP’s chief minister will be Ali Amin Gandapur,” said the former prime minister while speaking to journalists in Adiala jail, where he is currently incarcerated in a number of cases. 

The PTI founder also brushed off the possibility of forming a coalition government with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).

However, Khan said that he had directed his party leaders to hold talks with other parties except these three. “Those who have been brought [to rule] are the biggest money launderers,” he added. 

The former premier said that the general elections, which were held on February 8, will bring economic stability to the country.
