The PTI has previously named its provincial election commissioners. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa appointed Qazi Mohammad Anwar, Punjab appointed Waleed Iqbal, Sindh appointed Noorul Haq Qureshi, Balochistan appointed Syed Iqbal, and Gilgit-Baltistan appointed Shah Nasir as election commissioner.

Omar Ayub, the PTI’s chief organiser, released an official announcement.

Raoof Hasan, the head of the PTI, was unanimously chosen as the party’s main election commissioner on Wednesday.

During the PTI’s virtual general body meeting on Wednesday, this decision was made. The Central Secretariat was closed, thus the meeting was conducted by video connection.

PTI leaders Barrister Gohar Ali Khan, Omar Ayub, and Raoof Hassan were present at the meeting, along with representatives and members from Quetta, Peshawar, and Islamabad.

It was also planned for a resolution about the intra-party elections to be submitted during the meeting. Additionally, a plan for holding intra-party elections in 15 days will be developed.
