After PTI faced a major setback in the KP Local Govt. Elections, PM Imran Khan has blamed KP rout on the wrong selection of candidates.
Prime Minister Imran Khan reacting to the local bodies election in a tweet, said: “PTI made mistakes in 1st phase of KP LG elections & paid the price. Wrong candidate selection was a major cause. From now on I will personally be overseeing PTI’s LG election strategy in 2nd phase of KP LG elections & LG elections across Pakistan. InshaAllah PTI will come out stronger.”
The Opposition parties, particularly JUI-F, have taken an unassailable lead in Khyber Pakhtunkwa’s ongoing local body elections, leaving PTI far behind.
In the 64 tehsil council unofficial results obtained so far, the JUI-F has emerged victorious in 16 tehsil council seats while the PTI could only win in 14.
On the other hand, the independent candidates have won 10, ANP six, PML-N three, Jamaat-e-Islami two, and Tehreek-e-Istiqlal in the tehsil council elections.
