Two overage members of PYO removed.

PESHAWAR -- On the directives of Pakistan People's Party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, the Central General Secretary took notice of overage candidates in the youth wing of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and removed the youth president and general secretary for crossing the age of 35.

The office-bearers included Malak Amjad who also remained President People's Student Organization. Likewise, Hanif Khan, General Secretary who was also above 35 years of age was also removed from his office as youth general secretary after checking and scrutinizing his age.

Party sources said that both the office-bearers of People's Youth Organization called into the party central secretariat by Nayar Hussain Bukhari to Zardari House Islamabad where he checked their national identity cards to judge the exact age of the youth leadership.

The central general secretary immediately removed them from the party organization and directed the General Secretary Nayar Hussain Bukhari to fill these offices with relevant age holders.

The party sources said that it is expected that former youth General Secretary Sami Khan would be designated as Provincial President of People's Youth Organization to replace Malak Amjad.

Earlier to this, Ghulam Mustafa, former youth leader protested against overage candidates of the party's youth organization and had asked the Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and Asif Zardari either to reinstate the senior party worker of youth wing or remove all the overage office bearers in Youth Wing.

The parties have no election commissioner to elect office bearer through the election-based system for deferent wings of the party and that was the reason that there are always differences among the leaders of deferent wings of the party. The youth wing candidate time and again has asked the central leadership to streamline the election process for various party organizations but despite their tall claim of champion of democracy PPP leadership not bothered to hold fair and free intra party elections for its deferent wings.
