It further said that the PTI has failed to conduct intra-party elections.

The order stated that PTI has not adhered to our instructions and has failed to conduct intra-party elections in accordance with the prevailing PTI Constitution of 2019, the Election Act of 2017, and the Election Rules of 2017.

With the elections deemed illegitimate, Barrister Gohar Khan, who took over as the party’s chairman, no longer holds the top position in the party.
