The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) held intra-party elections as directed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). Barrister Gohar Ali Khan was elected as the new chairman unopposed. He pledged to fulfill his responsibilities as Imran Khan’s representative and emphasized the need to take the country forward.
Other party positions were also filled, and a founding member of PTI, Akbar S. Babar, rejected the nomination of Barrister Gohar Ali Khan. The ECP had previously annulled PTI’s intra-party polls held in June last year, calling them “highly objectionable”.
The PTI complained about an uneven playing field and accused the ECP of trying to keep Imran Khan and his party from polls. A PTI leader also expressed concern about Gohar’s close ties to PPP leader Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan.
However, a PTI spokesperson defended the party’s decision to hold intra-party elections on the ECP’s directives, stating that it demonstrated the party’s commitment to democracy and the rule of law.
Overall, the PTI held new intra-party elections to set an example of respecting the law, despite the ECP’s previous decision to nullify the last year’s polls.
