ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday dissolved all party offices ahead of intra-party elections on the basis of Justice (retd) Wajihuddin Ahmaed's report and announced to establish an interim organisational set-up of the party.

Addressing a press conference at his residence Bani Gala, the PTI chief confirmed irregularities in last intra-party elections as highlighted by the Justice (retd) Wajihuddin's report. He said that Chaudhry Sarwar would assume office of party chief organiser in Punjab and Dr Arif Alvi in Sindh.

Imran Khan said that Yousuf Ayub, who was disqualified by the court in the fake degree case, and Humayun Jogizai would be made organisers of PTI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan respectively. "Political and consultative committees will be set up in the centre to run the party affairs," he added.

He said that three-member inquiry commission investigating rigging in general elections 2013 would announce fresh elections this year. He said interim office-bearers would be appointed before elections. He made it clear that it was not a caretaker set-up because as per Justice (Retd) Wajihuddin Ahmad's report those who would run the caretaker set-up could not take part in elections. "We cannot afford to oust leaders from elections process therefore we decided to install an interim set-up," he added.

Imran Khan strongly criticised the findings of Model Town Joint Investigation Team (JIT), saying the JIT had given a clean chit to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and former provincial law minister.  "The JIT report is a message to the police to repeat this kind of incidents," he added.
