Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), reconsidered his choice of candidates for the Punjab election on Wednesday in response to a workers’ strike. The parliamentary board then awarded tickets to 32 candidates
after evaluating the allocation of seats for the provincial assembly.
According to PTI General Secretary Asad Umar, PTI granted 21 new candidates with party tickets after withdrawing 21 party tickets for the Punjab election.
He continued by saying that PTI had also given tickets to nine additional candidates.
On the other hand, PTI leader Azhar Mashwani has made a list of how the 32 tickets that were awarded in Punjab will be distributed public. This problem caused a great deal of commotion inside the party ranks, which compelled PTI chairman to change his mind about his electoral choices in order to settle the matter before important elections.
Imran Khan had tweeted on Friday, “I will start the tickets review process from tomorrow to 26th of cases brought to me by the four Reconciliation Committees that were created for this reason.
Even before the party leader started the review process, supporters of several hopefuls had already started rallies in order to have the decision to distribute tickets for their constituencies reviewed.
