Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP; Urdu: استحکامِ پاکستان پارٹی , lit.'Pakistan Stability Party') is a political party in Pakistan. It was founded by Jahangir Tareen on 8 June 2023. It was registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on 5 October 2023.[3]


The pre-existing tensions between Tareen and Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, combined with the May 9 protests, ultimately resulted in numerous politicians resigning from the PTI and the subsequent formation of the new political party.

Around one hundred leaders from all around Pakistan attended a dinner organized by Aleem Khan, where it was revealed that the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party had been formed.[4] The party's leader, Jahangir Tareen, spoke about his goals on the occasion, to "fulfill the teachings of Quaid-e-Azam", ending political and social divisions, and bringing political and economic reforms.[5][6][7]

On 18 July 2023, the IPP submitted an application for party registration with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). For the party's electoral symbol, they sought an eagle.[8]

On 5 October 2023, the ECP accepted the application and issued a notification of the IPP's registration.[9] On 26 October, the party was allotted the eagle as their electoral symbol.[10]


On 12 June 2023, Tareen had announced Aleem Khan as the first President of the IPP, Aamir Mehmood Kiani as the first Secretary-General, and Aun Chaudhry as the Additional Secretary-General and Spokesperson.[11] Due to Tareen's disqualification by the courts, he is unable to hold any official post in the IPP, but he is regarded as the "patron-in-chief" of the party.[12]
