ISLAMABAD: Days after the country went to polls, uncertainty continued to loom large on Monday after two well-known political leaders, Istehkam-i-Pakistan Party (IPP) chief Jahangir Khan Tareen and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Siraj-ul-Haq, made shocking announcements of stepping down from party positions.

 Tareen also decided to “step away from politics altogether”, while Siraj took responsibility for the party’s significant drubbing in the February 8 national polls.

In a post on X, Tareen said he would like to thank everyone who supported him in the elections and offered his congratulations to his political opponents over their victories.

However, he added that he had “immense respect for the will of the people of Pakistan” and was therefore stepping down.
