ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) suspended the basic membership of 10 more party activists and members for violating discipline on Thursday.

Those punished included former district nazim of Khushab Ahsan Tiwana for allegedly supporting rival candidates in the recent local government elections in Punjab.

According to media reports, PTI was also looking for legal options to get its four dissident members of the National Assembly de-seated for ‘constantly confronting’ the party policy in parliament.

According to a PTI statement, the party’s regional president Amir Mehmood Kiyani had suspended the basic membership of the chairmen of various union councils of Khushab who had allegedly supported the PML-N candidates during the final phase of the local bodies elections.
