ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Monday formed special committees to hammer out a strategy on government formation in the Centre, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, after having emerged as a ‘lead political party’ in the general elections.

The decision was taken in a meeting of the party Core Committee meeting held to also take stock of the fast changing post-election scene and the moves being made by the rival parties.

The participants agreedto the early completion of the nomination process for important government and parliamentary positions in the light of the recommendations and strategies proposed by the committees.

The forum lauded the people of the country for demonstrating political maturity through their power of vote on February 8 and noted that people, through their vote, gave PTI Founding Chairman Imran Khan an unprecedented certificate of patriotism and awarded his party with a clear majority. They made it clear that the party would strongly resist any undemocratic, illegal, apolitical and immoral attempt at all levels to hand over the rein of Pakistan to the criminals by stealing the public mandate. The participants said that the ongoing talks among the rejected minority groups regarding formation of government were an open contempt of the public mandate and their clear verdict.

PTI committee vowed that they would pursue those who undermined the democracy and violated the sanctity of the vote inside and outside of the parliament. It pointed out that voices were being raised against the poll fraud in and outside of the country because the public mandate was being brutally insulted.

The forum highlighted that political parties of national level including Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) were raising serious questions about the criminal role of the electoral body and the lack of transparency of the elections.

PTI committee said that the Returning Officers (ROs), who had committed serious electoral frauds like polluting the elections and violating the transparent public mandate, were national criminals and the people would hold them accountable for their crimes.

Meanwhile, PTI spokesperson highly appreciated JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeemur Rehman for showing grace and courage to expose the malicious plot of a daylight robbery of public mandate and scandalous role of the electoral watchdog in this regard.

Reacting to the JI Karachi Amir, he expressed gratitude to Hafiz Naeem for forfeiting his provincial assembly seat and exposing the criminal tampering with the election results along with the scandalous role of the ECP.
