Imran Khan seems to be worried over the electables who he awarded tickets to over the suggestion and opinion of leadership of the party but they lost. Interestingly, there were high hopes with the electables but they could not do well. Nadeem Afzal Chan, Nazar Muhammad Gondal, Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khan Khosa, Firdous Ashiq Awan, Sardar Asif Ali etc. are some of those prominent politicians in other words electables who could not live up to chairman‘s expectations. Moreover, from within the party, there was massive resistance from local leadership of PTI to award them tickets.
