Imran Khan unveils party tickets criteria for General Elections


LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan has unveiled the criteria for the award of the party tickets to the candidates for the General Elections 2018.

PTI chairman Imran Khan would be distributing the party tickets all by himself.

But he still believes that despite his best efforts it would be hard to find “Sadiq and Ameen”in Pakistan for award of party tickets.

He also thinks that even the Western countries also face this problem.

In his media interaction at the Chairman Secretariat here, Imran Khan said that tickets distribution among 900 candidates was a sensitive subject which needed to be handled carefully.

He said that he could not leave such an important issue at the disposal of the Parliamentary Boards and the district Presidents who will have recommendatory role this time.

“I would take all the decisions in this regard myself because it often leads to groupings within the party eventually landing the candidates in trouble”, he said, adding, that in 2013 elections he did not have enough time to select the best candidates.

Imran said that different set of criteria would be applied while selecting candidates from the four provinces. “It is because every province has different political dynamics which should be kept in view”, he added.
