KPK’s Provincial & National Candidates’ Lists for GE-2018

Baaghi brings you the exclusive KPK documents from PTI's Election Management Cell (EMC)

Amidst the political swelter of General Elections (GE) 2018 on 25 July, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) issued the final lists of its candidates yesterday. The growing chaos and clashes between electable candidates and ideological workers of PTI have deeply impacted and revealed the inner dissonance of the party.

PTI stalwarts like Jahangir Tareen (disqualified by NAB) and Shah Mehmood Qureshi (Senior Vice Chairman of PTI) are taking to media to render an exposé on the discords and rancor within the party. When it’s time to rise above the situation and bring to life the dream which Imran Khan cherished for more than two decades, they are facing sit-ins by party workers at Bani Gala.

To attend to the complains and legitimate concerns of the angry and dejected PTI workers, PTI Chairman Imran Khan, personally scrutinized the applications for three weeks with a dedicated team to come up with the final lists.

Pertinent to note here that lately many PTI workers and long time affiliates were offended for not being given GE-2018 tickets. Nonetheless, for PTI leadership it was not an internal entropy but a strategy to pick and choose those who know the “science of winning elections”, as described by Imran Khan.
