Imran gives important position to Hamid after disagreement with Fawad


KARACHI: PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday gave an important post in the party to founding member and law expert Hamid Khan days after Khan openly announced having disagreements with several serving and former members, including Fawad Chaudhry.

The PTI made an announcement via a statement, saying chairman Imran has set up an advisory council of the party, which would be headed by Hamid — who was also the former prime minister’s lawyer in a recent case.

It further said the 10-member advisory council would include Rauf Hassan, Najeeb Haroon, Arshad Dad, Jamal Ansari, Khalid Masood, Saleem Jan, Yaqoob Izhar, Tasneem Noorani and Bakhtiar Kasuri.

The advisory council will present its views and recommendations to the party chairman on important national issues, the statement added.
