Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) core committee has agreed to hold the intra-party elections within the time frame given by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
PTI’s approval comes days after the ECP ruled that PTI’s intra-party polls were not transparent, ordering the party to hold new elections if it wishes to retain its “bat” symbol.
On November 23, The Election Commission of Pakistan delivered the reserved verdict to PTI, directing the party to conduct intra-party elections within the next 20 days.
The verdict was delivered by a four-member commission, headed by Member Sindh Nisar Durrani.
The decision comes in response to the PTI’s failure to carry out transparent intra-party elections, prompting the Election Commission to intervene.
The ECP, in its verdict, highlighted the necessity for PTI to ensure transparent processes in its intra-party elections.
As per the directive, the election body has mandated PTI to organize intra-party elections within the stipulated 20-day period.
Additionally, a stern warning was issued that, in the event of the party’s failure to conduct these elections, the election symbol could be withdrawn.
