ISLAMABAD (92 News) – PTI chairman Imran Khan said that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa local government system is the best, but his MPAs and bureaucracy had been opposing it and for this reason, it could not be fully implemented in the province.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, he said that though the system has been imposed legally in the province, it will take some time to be implemented practically.

When asked why the LG powers had not been delegated practically to the elected representatives in the KP, he said: “We had been facing hardships in its implementation as this is a completely new and unique system in the country.”

The PTI chairman said that he was grateful to Allah for not coming into power in the center after the 2013 elections as they had faced a lot of difficulties in running the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government due to lack of experience.

All of our team members except Pervez Khattak were inexperienced to run the provincial government and for about a year we could not understand what was going on. We have learnt a lot in the past four years in the KP and this experience will be very handy for us once we come into power in the centre,” he maintained.
