Gohar Khan steps down from the role of election overseer to assume the position of Imran Khan’s successor.

Barrister Gohar Khan has stepped down from his role as the Chief Election Commissioner of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

This decision arrives amidst ongoing preparations for the party’s intra-party elections scheduled for Saturday.

Senior lawyer Niazullah Niazi has been appointed as the new chief election commissioner of PTI.

Gohar Khan’s resignation follows a meeting between a delegation from PTI’s legal team and the current party Chairman Imran Khan, presently detained in Adiala Jail.

The delegation, comprising Barrister Ali Zafar, Barrister Gohar Khan, Umair Niazi, and Ahmed Owais, reportedly briefed Imran Khan on the upcoming intra-party elections and the candidates competing for various positions.

During the 40-minute meeting, the party leader received updates on the arrangements for the intra-party elections and Barrister Gohar’s nomination.
