Dozens of workers from various constituencies have gathered outside Khan’s residence, demanding party tickets for their groups. Activists from Multan’s NA-154 constituency are demanding not to allot the ticket to Sikander Bosin. Workers from NA-51 FATA are also speaking against the award of tickets.
The protesters have urged Khan to review the distribution of tickets to the candidates. They have asked to provide them to ideological workers instead of para-shooters. Earlier, the party delayed the announcement of candidates for remaining constituencies for 72 hours.
A meeting of the party’s parliamentary board was also held on Tuesday. The members are scheduled to announce the new candidates after three days. The scrutiny process of candidates is also likely to continue for the next two days in the controversial constituencies of Islamabad, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
