Qureshi, Tareen appointed at top slots in PTI

ISLAMABAD: After around two years of internecine strife, the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) came full circle on Wednesday when it appointed again Shah Mehmood Qureshi vice chairman and Jahangir Khan Tareen general secretary, the two senior most party positions after that of the chairman.

According to two separate notifications signed by PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Qureshi and Tareen would assume the offices with immediate effect, the media wing of the PTI said in a press release.

After the PTI failed to conduct intra-party elections, which were scheduled for April-May, to elect its new office bearers, the party leadership has decided to fill the positions through nominations by the chairman.

Following the emergence of the Panama Papers scandal during the first week of April, Khan had said PTI workers needed to focus on the anti-government campaign rather than using their energies in contesting polls for the party offices.

But for PTI detractors, it is bitter rivalry among senior leaders of the party and lack of organisation which have forced Khan to postpone the elections. Otherwise, they said, the party should have gone ahead with the exercise Khan held dear to his heart to turn the PTI into the first truly democratic party of the country.

Khan has announced that his party will launch an anti-government movement if the government refuses to hold a free and fair investigation into the Panama Papers leaks starting with the prime minister and his three children.
