Description

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) (Urdu: پاکستان تحريک انصاف‬‎, "Pakistan Movement for Justice") is a political party in Pakistan founded in 1996 by former national cricket captain Imran Khan. PTI is the most rapidly growing political party of Pakistan, and has created a tri-party system, in which it opposes both the leftist People's Party and the conservative PML-N. It is a Third Way, Centrist party which aims to create a welfare state, where the state is responsible for education, health and employability of citizens.[4] It promotes freedom of thought, abolition of personal income tax and dismantling religious discrimination in Pakistan.[5][6] Directly following its founding in 1996, the party had little initial success.[7] Khan won a seat in the Pakistani general election, 2002. The party boycotted the 2008 election, but in 2013 it received over 7.5 million votes, making it second in the number of votes and third in the number of seats won. Although it sits in opposition to the government at national level, the party governs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, a reflection of its consolidated support among ethnic Pashtuns
