PTI has choosen the basic step of democracy & gone for election within the party. Every member has right to elect thier party Representative to run the party within party constituation or bylaws. If some difference arise then members got the right to remove the Elected Representative though voting system. All other parties are family party and controled by their family members & nothing to do with democracy. They buffing and cheating the proples of Pakistan using the name of democracy. I appeal to other non democratic party for God sake don;t play with sentiments of the innocent peoples.

This is basic grass root system of true democracy adopted by PTI to stengthen true democraric system. Other parties is not democratic party rather I should say family party. In family politcal system the peoples don't have right of accountability of their leaders.The system is controlled by remote controled by few nominated relatives not by the common peoples. I hope PTI adopted the right system and parry for its success.
