PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Criticizes Unconstitutional Allocation of Reserved Seats

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Barrister Gohar reaffirmed the party's stance on the allocation of reserved seats, calling it a matter of constitutional integrity. According to Article 51 of the constitution, Barrister Gohar emphasized that political parties should only be awarded reserved seats proportional to their electoral victories. He expressed disappointment over the delay in reaching a decision, which has consequently stalled Senate elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.


Highlighting PTI's electoral efforts, Barrister Gohar detailed the submission of extensive documentation to the Election Commission, totaling 780 pages. He criticized the Election Commission for allegedly attempting to stifle public representation, urging a swift resolution to the issue of reserved seats within the next two to three days.


Addressing the nomination process, Barrister Gohar underscored PTI's commitment to transparency, noting the challenges faced and efforts made to ensure fair scrutiny of candidates. Despite PTI's cooperation, he criticized the Election Commission's delay in scrutinizing nominations until January 13th, following a late-night Supreme Court decision on the same day.


Barrister Gohar concluded by reaffirming PTI's dedication to upholding constitutional principles and ensuring fair electoral practices. He called for a prompt resolution to the ongoing legal challenges surrounding the allocation of reserved seats, emphasizing the importance of maintaining constitutional integrity in Pakistan's democratic processes.
