Despite the withdrawal of support by Balochistan National Party Mengal, the ruling PTI and allies can still maintain majority in the house. However, it would be very difficult to accept growing demands of allies for the PTI after the departure of BNP Mengal.

Before the BNP-M’s withdrawal, the PTI enjoyed a majority in the National Assembly with 156 seats while along with all its allies it had a total of 186 seats in the lower house of parliament. The MQM has seven, PML-Q has five, Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) five, BNP-M has four, Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) has three and Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) and Awami Muslim League have one seat each besides four independent lawmakers.

On the other hand the opposition has 156 seats, as Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has 84 seats, Pakistan Peoples Party 55, Mutahidda Majlis-i-Amal Pakistan 16 and Awami National Party has one seat.
