    PPP to hold party polls in KP

    ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has ordered that party elections for office-bearers should be begun from five districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

    The elections will be held under a new pattern set by a committee comprising three senior party leaders, PPP spokesman Senator Farhatullah Babar told Dawn on Wednesday.

    “In the first phase, intra-party elections will be held in five districts of KP right from the district to union council levels under the new election pattern,” he said.

    However, he did not elaborate on the new pattern and said if it succeeded in the districts it would be replicated in other provinces and at the centre.

    Mr Bilawal held meetings with PPP leaders to discuss reorganisation of the party and other issues.

    He discussed with a KP PPP delegation, comprising Rahim Dad Khan, Faisal Karim Kundi, Liaqat Shabab, Humayun Khan, Akbar Khan, Tehmash Khan, Zulqurnain and Zulfikar Afghani, the arrangements for holding the party elections in the province and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.

    “During the meeting, Mr Bilawal ordered intra-party elections in KP,” the spokesman said.

    The PPP conducted its last party elections two years ago and they were supervised by former chairman of Senate Farooq Naek.

    The PPP chief is on a four-day visit to the federal capital mainly to attend a ceremony held at Zardari House on Wednesday to pay tribute to the martyrs of Peshawar’s Army Public School.

    Quran Khwani was held and prayers offered for those killed by terrorists on Dec 16 last year.

    According to the spokesman, orphan children from a ‘Sweet Home’, hailing from Swat and Wana, also participated in the event. Candles were also lit in memory of the victims.

    The PPP chief arrived here on Tuesday night and held a meeting with senior party leaders. He will return to Karachi on Friday.

    A delegation of the PPP’s Human Rights Cell, led by its coordinator Dr Nafisa Shah, also presented a report to him.
