No rift among party members on awarding tickets: Fawad

Science and Technology Minister Ch Fawad Hussain said on Tuesday that the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) leadership awarded the tickets to sensible and mature personalities for contesting upcoming Senate elections.

There was no rift among party members on awarding tickets, he stated in an interview with a private television channel.

The people of all constituencies wanted to observe transparent elections and for this, we have developed consensus on open balloting, he stated. Open balloting, he said would close doors for horse-trading.

The Pakistan People’s Party and Pakistan Muslim League-N made Charter of Democracy (CoD), in which, the leaders of political parties were supporting open balloting system, he added.

In reply to a question, the minister said that Opposition parties were facing set back due to immature politics of their leaders including Maryam Nawaz and Bilawal Bhutto.

Immature leadership did not have accurate knowledge of the politics of this country, he stated. He said the ruling party would ensure free and fair Senate elections.
