Before completion of Local Government elections, PTI Chairman Imran Khan
and his party other colleagues have time and again accredited themselves of empowering Local Government institutions. But now all elected representatives including District, Town Nazims and Naib Nazims are lacking powers and authorities.

especially Chief Minister Pervez Khattak to transfer due powers and authorities to local government institutions, its office holders and councilors.
Amir Rahman said that since completion of Local Government election

He said that PTI leaders must realize their responsibilities at this
stage otherwise these elected representatives could become united for their due rights and powers which may be harmful.
