The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has declared 54 candidates for City Mayor and Tehsil Chairman in the second round of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) Local Body Elections.
According to the facts, the PTI has provided tickets to relatives of Assembly Members, including the Chief Minister’s brother, for the second round of KPK Local Body Elections.
Abdullah Swat, the brother of KPK Chief Minister KPK, has been nominated from Matta Tehsil. Meanwhile, tickets have been distributed to the family of Lower Dir Assembly Members.
For the second phase, MNA Bashir Khan’s nephew and MPA Shafiullah’s son have been nominated. While MNA Mehboob Shah’s brother has also been handed a ticket.
It may be noted that the PTI had handed tickets to the families of Assembly Members even in the first round, which was viewed as the key reason for the defeat.

The districts include Abbottabad, Mansehra, Battagram, Torghar, Kohistan Upper, Kohistan Lower, Kolai Palas Kohistan, Swat, Malakand, Shangla, Lower Dir, Upper Dir, Chitral Upper, Chitral Lower, Kurram, Orakzai, North Waziristan, and South Waziristan, according to ECP.
