ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders who have been displeased with the party over the award of tickets for the forthcoming elections on Thursday presented a charter of demands seeking the formation of a transparent parliamentary board of the party.

The disgruntled leaders presented their demands at a meeting in Islamabad, which was attended by senior party members including Hamid Khan and others from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.

They said that some decisions by the existing parliamentary board of the party were unjust, adding that the board also had members who had been disqualified or were facing inquiries by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

They also demanded the formation of a transparent parliamentary board and review of decisions made pertaining to the distribution of party tickets. They alleged that the party’s list of candidates for reserved seats for women also comprises of ‘favorites’.

The disgruntled party members condemned non-submission of priority list by the PTI for reserved seats for minorities in Punjab. They demanded that the ones, who contested the 2013 general elections, should again be awarded party tickets.

The next meeting of these leaders has been summoned on June 26.
