Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has a strange reputation when it comes to elections, the province has a history of electing a different party in every election. In 2002, they elected the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), an alliance of religio-political parties.
In 2008, they gave Awami National Party (ANP) a chance but only a single chance as always. In 2013, they gambled over the PTI, giving it 34 of the 94 provincial assembly seats. The PTI formed a coalition government with Jamaat-i-Islami and other parties.
Pervez Khattak completed his five-year term as Chief Minister of the province. Jamaat-e-Islami, however, left the alliance with around a month before the end of the tenure and announced to contest polls from the MMA platform again. With Imran Khan hopeful of defying odds and change history be getting re-elected to rule the province, the biggest challenge he might face in the province is MMA.
PML-N's KP chapter led by Amir Muqam too can pose a threat to PTI as the party is running its campaign on the development projects its government initiated in Punjab and in the federation.
