ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is the only mainstream party yet to announce its election manifesto.
According to PTI spokesman Shafqat Mehmood, the document is ready for printing and will be made public by the end of this week.
The PML-N, PPP and ANP have unveiled their manifestos and the MQM made a detailed presentation of its manifesto on Monday in Karachi.
Mr Mehmood said the delay in the announcement of the manifesto wasn’t a serious issue because the party had already released several issue-based policy papers.
The PTI announced that it would finalise the list of its candidates by April 8 and release it after the completion of the scrutiny of nomination papers.
A meeting of the PTI’s parliamentary board, presided over by the party’s chairman Imran Khan, “reviewed the applications of candidates for each national and provincial constituency in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The recommendations of the provincial parliamentary board as well as proposals by the provincial, regional and district presidents were also considered,” the spokesman said.
