Islamabad: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday demanded the reconstitution of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) as demanded by Dr Tahirul Qadri and resignation of President Asif Ali Zardari before the elections.
The decisions were made during a meeting of the political strategy committee of the party chaired by the chairman Imran Khan.
The meeting demanded Asif Ali Zardari’s resignation stating that as co-chairman of the PPP the president could not do justice with his role of overseeing the holding of general elections, hence, his stay in the presidency would make the election process doubtful.
They party also expressed concerns over the ECP’s failure to implement the Supreme Court’s order regarding delimitation and voter verification in Karachi.
PTI President Makhdoom Javed Hashmi and PTI Vice Chairman Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi briefed the committee on the political contacts made with different political parties in this regard.
About possible electoral alliances with other political parties, the meeting reiterated its stance that the PTI was ready to talk with all those political parties which are not part of federal or provincial governments.
