    Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has introduced a portal on its official website featuring comprehensive details of all candidates organized by constituency, providing a streamlined method for party workers and voters to access crucial information. The decision to create the portal comes in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s late-night ruling affirming the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) December 22 decision to deprive PTI of its distinctive poll symbol.PTI Chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan said that following the SC’s verdict, party nominees will now contest elections as independent candidates, vowing to get votes in the name of party founder Imran Khan. The ECP has allotted various symbols to the now-independent candidates and issued a list of the allotted symbols.

    The apex court on Saturday set aside the January 10 order of the Peshawar High Court (PHC), effectively depriving the PTI of its iconic election symbol of the cricket bat in a major blow to the former ruling party ahead of the February 8 general elections.

    Talking to the media after the decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, PTI lawyers said that following the court verdict, candidates will now contest polls as independents. They added that PTI has already developed a strategy in this regard and urged the ‘massive’ voter base of the party to not worry about the current circumstances.
