Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) (Urdu: پاکستان تحريک انصاف‬‎, "Pakistan Movement for Justice") is a political party in Pakistan founded in 1996 by former national cricket captain Imran Khan. PTI is the most rapidly growing political party of Pakistan, and has created a tri-party system, in which it opposes both the leftist People's Party and the conservative PML-N.
, The party aims to create a welfare state, where the state is responsible for education, health and employability ...of citizens.[4] It promotes freedom of thought, abolition of personal income tax and dismantling religious discrimination in Pakistan.[6][7]
, Directly following its founding in 1996, the party had little initial success.[8] Khan won a seat in the Pakistani general election, 2002. The party boycotted the 2008 election, but in 2013 it received over 7.5 million votes, making it second in the number of votes and third in the number of seats won. Although it sits in opposition to the government at national level, the party governs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, a reflection of its consolidated support among ethnic Pashtuns.[9][10]
, The party terms itself an 'anti-status quo movement' advocating egalitarian Islamic democracy.[1][2][3] It claims to be the only non-family party of mainstream Pakistani politics.[11] With over 10 million members in Pakistan and abroad, it claims to be Pakistan's largest party by membership.[12][13][14] According to the 2013 election results, PTI was the third largest party in National Assembly, and emerged as the governing party of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.[15]
, PTI has led the efforts to highlight corruption of the rulers. This effort is spearheaded by Chairman Imran Khan himself. Party activists especially Abdul Quayyum Khan Kundi, Saleem Jan, Jahangir Rehman, Ali Asghar Khan, Shahbaz Gul Shinwari, Yaqoob Izhar and Dr. Farid Malik have requested party Chairman that without constitutional organization the divisions inside the party cannot be overcome which could cause us to lose general elections. Abdul Quayyum Khan Kundi held a press conference in front of Bani Gala to request chairman Imran Khan to initiate a dialogue and consensus about party institution building.
