LAHORE: Imran Khan has been elected chairman of Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) unopposed during the intra-party elections on Wednesday, DawnNews reported.

The cricketer-turned-politician was elected unopposed as no other candidate dared to contest for the top post.

Speaking to media representatives after submitting his nomination papers, Khan informed that no one will be eligible to hold the post of the party chairman for more than two terms.

Khan has been advocating that the intra-party polls will ultimately end politics of dynasty from the country.

He said discussion related to seat adjustment in the upcoming general elections in the country with Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) will be held after the PTI’s March 23 rally in Lahore.

Party’s chief election commissioner Hamid Khan said that intra-party polls on a total of 48 posts will be held on Thursday.

He said Makhdoom Javed Hashmi will contest Umar Sarfraz Cheema for the post of party president while for vice-chairman's slot, Bakhtiar Qusoori and Saifullah will challenge Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
