ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan criticised Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Chairman Executive Board stating that Sethi is responsible for the team’s poor performance in recent tournaments.
While addressing a press conference on Friday, Khan discussed about the internal democracy of his party and said that only through inter-party elections Tehreek-e-Insaf can become an institution.
He said that the party has learnt from its mistakes and in order to avoid being divided, a penal system was not formed. He said that Justice Wajihuddin dissolved the elections after hearing five to six petitions.
While referring to his party’s previous Chief Election Commissioner, Tasneem Noorani, Khan said that Noorani favoured the idea of votes being casted through cell phone as opposed to the conventional method of using a voting paper. He added that it is not possible to conduct such massive elections on mobile phones as there will be technical glitches in the process.
He said that the party formed a new Election Commission under the leadership of Noorani and were of the view that Noorani’s only task is to conduct elections within the party but now the party is aiming for direct elections. He said that the Election Commission also directed towards the election of a council as well.
PTI Chief said that his party adopted the model of the United Kingdom and the United States in order to conduct elections within the part. He added that the party comprises of 2 million members as of now and that the date to achieve membership is April 15 and that the party’s elections will be held on a single day.
Criticising PCB’s Chairman Executive Board, Khan said that Najam Sethi is responsible for the team’s poor performance adding that rest of the board members will resign but Sethi will not.
He mocked him by stating that he made the PM win the election of 2013 after a lot of toiling and also went on to say that PM Nawaz and Najam Sethi should be the opening pair of the Pakistani side.
He added that the PM and Sethi should be given with the ‘Men of the series’ award over their performance in the recent World T20 2016.
