Partners in rigging?

Sir: The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has accused the PTI of rigging the recently held local bodies elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, according to a news item. I find it amusing that the JI is in coalition with the PTI in (mis)governing the province. How can it continue working with the PTI now? Why do its ministers not resign immediately? Is it because they, too, love the perks and privileges that come with being ministers? If so, what is the difference between them and other corrupt politicians in the country?
