Peshawar: Chairman Imran Khan has issued the following statement on the PTI Election Commission’s decision on dual offices: “While we respect the independence of our Election Commission and would not seek to interfere in its workings, their decision on dual offices is interpretative.

Our PTI Constitution is silent on this issue and there are differing interpretations on this issue amongst the Party leadership. Therefore the issue has to be discussed and decided upon in the Party’s apex decision-making body the Central Executive Committee where constitutional changes may also have to be made.

Till such time as the Central Executive Committee meets, the status quo that prevailed, before the meeting and decision of the PTI Central Election Commission, will continue to prevail.”
