PTI's Ali Amin Gandapur was elected as Chief Minister of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) on Friday amid sloganeering and ruckus by party workers in the assembly.

In the 145-member K-P Assembly, PTI backed independent candidates have 91 seats, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) has 9, Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has 9, Pakistan People’s Party has 5, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Parliamentarians (PTI-P) has 2, and Awami National Party has 1 seat, reported The Express Tribune.

Gandapur earlier said PTI will ensure development in the province if it comes to power.

“Bringing the far-flung districts of the province at par with the rest of the province in development is my top priority,” he was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

“Let me tell you we will establish a lasting peace at any cost as law and order is also our first priority,” he said.

Earlier,  Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl announced it would boycott  the elections for the offices of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s chief minister and the provincial assembly’s speaker and deputy speaker.

We are going to boycott this electoral exercise,” senior JUI-F leader and former chief minister Akram Khan Durrani told reporters on Wednesday as quoted by Dawn News.
