ISLAMABAD: Accept that PTI is not mobilized at the grassroots level, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan announced the holding of direct elections within the party in the provinces and districts.
“I had given my word to the Justice Wajih ud Din on holding fresh elections within the party due to irregularities,” Khan told a news conference.
“We will go to the polls a month after the opening of a membership drive. We have taken this decision to learn a lesson from past mistakes,” he said.
The PTI chief said more rigging took place in local government elections than in general elections.
H, however, admitted that the PTI could not be mobilized at the grassroots level. “No changes on one side and” status quo “on the other side.”
