ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday announced his party's intent to boycott a joint session of parliament scheduled for Wednesday.

After much debate the party made the decision due to its stance on corruption and the prime minister's refusal to hold himself accountable after Panamagate, Imran Khan told journalists.

"We have a clear line on the prime minister. We thought if we attend tomorrow, we would be endorsing him. But he has lost his moral authority because of the Panama leaks," he said.

Earlier, Imran Khan chaired a party meeting here in the federal capital to discuss future strategy of the party regarding Islamabad lock down.

On October 1, the PTI chairman had vowed to shut down the federal capital as part of protest against the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government after Muharram.
