ISLAMABAD: PTI Secretary-General Asad Umar said Sunday that his party’s chairman Imran Khan would not return to the National Assembly after winning the latest by-elections — where he is expected to win several seats.

In conversation with journalists as the election results were pouring in, Umar said: “Today’s election was a referendum. Imran Khan will not return to the assembly after winning and he will also not take the oath.”

The former federal minister said the party’s chairman has directed all workers to observe “Youm-e-Tashakur”.
