Speaking to the media in Rawalpindi, Barrister Gohar said that some of the PTI delegation was not allowed to meet Imran Khan in jail. He said that the nation had seen that Imran’s incarceration was illegal and unconstitutional.

He asserted that the PTI would play its role in Parliament and would work on moving the parliamentary system forward. “This will be the first time that those who do no have the people’s mandate will be sitting [in the assemblies],” he said.

He further said that PTI believed in parliamentary politics, reiterating that the party would play its role in Parliament.

Responding to a question, he said that PTI Senator Ali Zafar would contest the party’s intra-party polls, which are scheduled for March 3, for the chairman slot. He further said that Omar Ayub would contest the polls for the position of the party secretary general.

“This is Khan sahib’s decision,” he said.
