It is worth noting that Latif Khosa had previously received a show-cause notice from the PPP for representing former Prime Minister Imran Khan in a corruption case. Additionally, Khosa, along with Aitzaz Ahsan, refrained from attending a PPP Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting in Lahore. This move by Khosa comes amid a significant exodus of leaders from Tehreek-e-Insaf, marking a notable setback for the party following the May 9 attacks.
