Meanwhile, sources in PTI said that Khattak, Qaiser and others who have secured seats in the NA along with the K-P assembly, would have to leave their provincial seats as the party needs every seat to get the required number to form its federal government.

In a related development, two main parties - PML-N and PPP - have agreed on formulation of a "coordinated joint strategy".

The PPP delegation comprised former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Sherry Rehman, Qamar Zaman Kaira and Farhatullah Babar while the PML-N side was represented by Mushahid Hussain Sayed, Ayaz Sadiq, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Sardar Mahtab Ahmed Khan.

The Allahu Akbar Tehreek party of Hafiz Saeed, who is accused of masterminding the 2008 attacks that killed 166 people in the Indian city of Mumbai, did not win a single seat.
