Islamabad -- Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Azam Swati has dissolved all the party posts for holding intra-party election in transparent manner.

A notification in this regard was also issued. In a statement PTI CEC Azam Swati said that all the posts of the party have been dissolved owing to the Intra-party elections and main objective of this action was to hold transparent intra-party election. The nomination papers could be filed till Monday night and the polling process would be held on June 17 through SMS.

It was worth mentioned here that few week earlier Chairman Imran Khan has announced that the intra-party elections will be held in June under new election commissioner Senator Azam Swati. The decision was made in a meeting of the party's central executive committee (CEC).

The PTI had held its last intra-party polls on March 23, 2013 under election commissioner Hamid Khan and, according to its constitution, was supposed to conduct the exercise again by March this year, which it did not.

Kaptaan had dissolved all party organizations in 2015 following complaints of massive rigging in the intra-party elections and in the light of recommendations of a two-member tribunal constituted under Wajihuddin to probe the charges of rigging and irregularities in the elections. However, on September 25, 2016 Justice Retd Wajihuddin had decided to left the PTI and his resignation sent to PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
