Imran to monitor Lahore PTI intra party election  


LAHORE, Nov 22: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan says he will personally monitor intra-party polls of the provincial metropolis chapter.

He announced the decision in a meeting with organisers of provincial assembly constituencies here, a participant of the sitting told media. A delegation of party leaders comprising Malik Zaheer Abbas, Shaikh Imtiaz, Yasir Gilani, Asif Bashir, Mustafa Rasheed and others had called on the PTI chief at his residence to apprise him of the concerns among them about the intra-party polls particularly the influence of affluent hopefuls for party tickets in general elections on the polling process. Allaying their concerns, Khan said he would himself supervise the process while organisers of the provincial constituencies would be part of the monitoring team to circumvent any chances of manipulating the intra-partypolls.

A press release quoted the party chairman as assuring the delegation that he would never ignore those old guards who had made the Oct 30, 2011 public meeting in Lahore a success.
 He also said that no opportunist and corrupt would be awarded party ticket in the general elections and only diehard, honest and ideological PTI workers would be chosen for the purpose.
 He said the PTI is an ideological party and not a personality cult or family party so no one can hijack it.
 Meanwhile, a joint meeting of former PTI district leaders, MPs and nazims was held at Ichhra here where they were briefed about the intra-party polls by the elders.
 Ijaz Chaudhry, Dr Yasmin Rashid and Andleeb Abbas told them that workshops would be held at divisional, district and tehsil levels regarding the polls to elect around 80,000 office-bearers across the country.
