Committee to draft new constitution and party structure

In a major restructuring exercise, the premier constituted a 21-member committee to work out a new constitution and structure of the party. The decision was taken in a Supreme Committee meeting after PTI’s dull performance in the 2021 Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Local Bodies elections.

At a media briefing on Friday, Chaudhry said that PTI was to implement a new mechanism to issue party tickets after nepotism turned out to be a major cause of its poor showing in KP.

In a report presented to Imran Khan earlier this week, the KP government said that tickets were issued to the relatives of the governor, ministers, and the lawmakers of the PTI and it created a rift in the party and the vote bank was divided.

Chaudhry said that in the future wherever a party ticket is to be issued to a relative of a party leader, the decision would not be taken by the local leadership, and instead, a special committee at the central level will decide on the ticket.
