Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazal (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain on Thursday resolved not to withdraw parliamentary motions against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNAs. MQM has formally notified the government about its decision. According to sources, JUI chief Fazlur Rehman phoned MQM leader Altaf Hussain and both the leaders exchanged views over their motions against PTI.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman has brushed aside a string of claims that his party has taken money from the establishment to topple the government, saying if it is proved that he has taken money from the establishment, he will say good bye to politics for good. Imran Khan, in a speech in a press conference on Thursday which also drew in party central leaders Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Chaudhry Sarwar, claimed, "If we are ever de-seated from the National Assembly, we would be again in the assembly by winning the bye- election."
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is leading in the re-polling in 350 polling stations of 116 district councils and 114 tehsil councils seats held on Thursday in 14 districts of the province, private TV channels reported. According to un-official results, PTI is leading with victory in 35 district council seats followed by independent candidates in 19 seats, JUI-F in 12, ANP in six, and Jamaat-e-Islami, QWP and PML-N in three seats each.
In a latest development after the Judicial Commission's report, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Thursday wrote a letter to Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), seeking his response on how to rectify the failures and violations committed in 2013 general elections pointed out by the commission.
In a meeting with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Punjab Organiser Chaudhary Mohammad Sarwar, former PML-N Lahore president Haji Imdad Hussain as well as PPP and PML-Q provincial assembly ticket-holders along with 60 former Nazims, Naib Nazims and councillors announced joining the PTI.
An election tribunal on Thursday rejected the request by lawyers of National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq for adjournment of the alleged rigging case of NA-122 to August 22 and fixed it for August 3. Tribunal Judge Kazim Ali Malik said the verdict on the alleged matter of rigging in the constituencies NA-122 and PP-143 would be announced if the arguments were completed. The Associates of Asjad Saeed, Counsel of Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, sought adjournment of the case until August 22 as their senior failed to appear because he had gone abroad.
Nation on Thursday celebrated 122nd birth anniversary of Madr-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah, younger sister of the Father of Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, without any pomp and show. Scores of people, along with their children, could be witnessed visiting her grave located on the premises of Quaid-e-Azam's mausoleum and offering prayers.
