Marriyum questions transparency of PTI’s brief intra-party election

Says PTI’s rapid 15-minute ‘selection process’ aimed to deceive public, the Election Commission and party members

ISLAMABAD  -  Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Information Secretary, Marriyum Aurangzeb expressed amazement on Saturday at the unconventional intra-party elections of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf, which resulted in the unanimous ‘election’ of office bearers within a 15-minute timeframe. Talking to media on Saturday, she highlighted the unorthodox elements of PTI’s intra-party election process, such as the undisclosed venue, the lack of participating voters or seconders, proposers, the absence of a presiding officer and the notable lack of voter lists. She asserted that PTI’s rapid 15-minute “selection process” aimed to deceive the public, the Election Commission and party members. She expressed regret that numerous leaders were excluded from the entire intra-party election process, lacking a fair playing field. Surprisingly, those who were not providing a level playing field for their party members were demanding the same fairness for their leader.
