PTI’s intra-party election challenged in ECP

Petition alleges polls were not held as per Constitution

A petition was filed against the intra-party election of PTI in the Election Commission of Pakistan on Tuesday in which Barrister Gohar Khan succeeded Imran Khan as the party chairman.

The intra-party elections were not held as per the Constitution, said the petition that was filed by PTI member Raja Tahir Nawaz.

The development comes day after Akbar S Babar, one of the founding members of the PTI, told Aaj News that he would challenge the PTI’s intra-party election in the ECP.

In an interview with Spotlight with Munizae Jahangir, he claimed that never it has happened that 15 to 20 people were present in the intra-party election.

The election was held after forming a dummy panel, the petition alleged and added that it was the responsibility of the secretary general to organise the poll.

Nawaz demanded that the intra-party election should be declared null and void and the party secretary general should be directed to again organise the poll.

On December 2, Gohar was elected unopposed chairman of PTI after being nominated by Khan for the top slot.
