Office of International Chapters (OIC) appointed Mr. Shahid Hussain as Deputy Secretary International Affairs (DSIA) for Canada and Middle-East. Notification of appointment for Mr. Shahid Hussain can be found on following link.
Canadian Chapter had great contribution for the party in the past but for some reasons its been dormant for a while and/or not performing to its expected potential, we understand its importance and are well aware of the challenges faced by PTI workers in Canada. In past few months Mr. Shahid Hussain has been in constant touch with several workers and officials appointed by OIC and also with those who are working independently. We understand that there are groups and individuals who have difference of opinion on how PTI should be functioning in the region. We in PTI respect diversity and believe in “difference of opinion” as “healthy”, as long as it remains within dignified mechanism and within party’s code of conduct.
Like most of the International Chapters, Officials in Canada Chapters were also appointed based on their performance and long affiliation with the party. We value their hard work and dedication for the party for last several years and we believe that these party workers are important assets, but wherever there are appointments, there are issues; appointments are always questioned, so to ensure discipline in the party, elections in Canadian chapter is inevitable.
We’ll keep you posted, stay tuned!!!
