The PTI has said the “state’s atrocities” against the party had intensified after the date of the next general elections was decided.
In a statement issued after meeting of the PTI’s core committee, the party maintained that the series of “kidnapping of PTI leaders for statements” by some state institutions was still under way.
“The inaction of the ECP and caretaker government on the ‘enforced disappearance’ of [PTI] Central Additional Secretary General Ali Nawaz Awan is the worst example of lawlessness,” it continued.
The PTI accused the ECP and caretaker government of completely failing to fulfill their constitutional duty and being the “key facilitators” in the state agenda of “deviating” from the Constitution.

It added that the ECP and interim set-up should realise their sensitive duties and instead of being a “part of conspiracies against democracy”, they should play their role for its survival and protection.
The PTI core committee demanded that the series of “illegal” raids, arrests, harassment as well as enforced disappearances of party activists and leaders across the country should be stopped immediately.
The PTI reiterated its demand to conduct the trial of cases against party chief and deposed premier Imran Khan in open court in the presence of local and foreign media.
It continued that there was no constitutional or legal justification for conducting the trial against the PTI chief in secret or in jail.
