    History in the making, first time of its kind in Pakistan..

    [​IMG]

    11 March 2012 ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan announced after CEC meeting to initiate nation wide PTI membership campaign, followed by PTI elections

    All office holders shall resign from their designations, including Chairman, then anyone would be able to contest for the particular designation of his/her choice in the party elections...

    party supporters who are registered with party shall cast vote to their respective representative from their constituency...

    I am not sure what is the mechanism set for the top hierarchy but at constituency level, its going to be like this...

    so if you think anyone is not up to the standard you set for a candidate, dont just sit around idle, get register with PTI and vote him out before he gets ticket in elections from PTI...

    help PTI built a better Pakistan... PTI is the only way forward...

    Loving it, this is how a democratic party works !! :tup:

    PTI to hold US-style primaries

    LAHORE: As Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) gears itself for the upcoming general elections, the party is holding intra party elections to elect election candidates.

    In a US-style candidate nomination and ticket-awarding process, PTI aims to introduce local caucuses on district levels throughout the country. Aspiring candidates would undertake debates and undergo primaries to win a party ticket for contesting on Provincial Assembly or National Assembly seats.

    PTI will also launch a massive membership drive with the target being four million registered members for their electoral college.
    The members of the caucus in turn will send a candidate for national and provincial assembly elections.

    The new party constitution, which is still on the drawing board, envisages the details of the local caucuses and Electoral College. At the moment PTI has almost 800,000 basic members.

    “No matter, how high-profile a politician is, a ticket is not guaranteed unless the local caucus awards him the nomination,” said Andleeb Abbas, PTI information secretary.

    The members of this Electoral College will be picked during the membership drive from every union council of the country.
    Meanwhile the much-awaited constitution of the party is being debated by the central executive committee of the party and will be released in two weeks.

    The party is also going to launch an Insaf Professional Forum on March 19 in Lahore that would include top professionals from Punjab and it would serve as an advisory board on the technical matters. Moreover, PTI Chairman Imran Khan is going to launch a public contact drive in the south Punjab which would span across three days during which Khan would address public rallies in Mailsi, Muzzaffargarh, Khanewal and Bahawalnagar. On March 23, Khan would address a public rally in Sialkot.

    On April 8, the party has planned a big public rally in Abbottabad for which preparations are under way. During the rally Khan is expected to take a position on the formation of Hazara province. The PTI bandwagon is going to Quetta on April 20 for what is billed to be the biggest public gathering thus far.

    Details of the rally are being worked out by the committee headed by PTI Balochistan President Qasim Suri.
    PTI expects to attract dissident Baloch nationalist leaders to the rally. The party wants to turn this event in Quetta as a major step towards unifying Baloch leaders back into the national fold. To achieve this objective Khan had been in touch with the Baloch leaders and that is why the party has kept postponing its Quetta show.

    this is really history in the making...:tup: however, it must be done quickly, as the focus of the party should be on General Elections...

    You know... with every day I'm getting more and more pro-Imran Khan and pro-PTI. This move from them is admirable, indeed.

    That is why I resisted official threads in the name of Musharaf and the clan. Being a defence forum, it has flavour of everything but its major strength is defence and must remain defence. Thanks for being thoughtful on this aspect.

    Regarding PTI - this step is going to be a trend setter and eventually other parties will feel presurred to have elections within their parties too.. but as we know.. PMLN's Bhag-chor Shareef will be elected uncontested and Moulana Zardari is going to keep everything good for himself, the "divine kids" and blessed cabinet of Rehman Malik, Firdos Ashaq and Raja Perveiz Ashraf.

    Well, good step.

    Let's hope it is not like NS PML elections!!!

    Although I am sure it won't be. Because it is people who will vote, not already office bearers.
