Federal Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz feels PTI didn’t do too bad in the first phase of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa local government election held Sunday.

PTI has learned a lot from the ongoing local government elections in KP and the party will use this experience to prepare for the next elections, Faraz opined.

“We have been given a chance to change our strategy and eliminate our shortcomings,” Faraz said while expressing his views over the results of the LG polls where the Opposition party JUI-F emerged victorious, bagging majority seats.

The Opposition parties, particularly JUI-F, have taken an unassailable lead in KP’s ongoing local body elections, leaving PTI behind, according to unofficial results.

The PTI leaders have accepted their defeat as the ruling party could not grab a single mayor seat out of the four. The PTI could win a tehsil in Peshawar out of six tehsils.

According to Faraz, PTI’s performance in the contest was still not that bad.

“The reason behind PTI’s failure in the election is that most of PTI’s candidates contested against aspirants of their own party,” the minister said.

He said that another reason was that some people were resentful over the current wave of inflation.
