Advocate Sher Afzal Khan Marwat appointed as PTI senior vice president

The announcement expressed that Marwat would assume his role with immediate effect, and he, in turn, expressed gratitude, stating that he is honored by Imran Khan's trust and that this new responsibility would motivate him to work even harder.

On Wednesday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced the appointment of Sher Afzal Khan Marwat, a member of Chairman Imran Khan’s legal team, as the party’s senior vice president. The notification, signed by Secretary General Omar Ayub Khan, was shared on the social media platform X.

The announcement expressed that Marwat would assume his role with immediate effect, and he, in turn, expressed gratitude, stating that he is honored by Imran Khan’s trust and that this new responsibility would motivate him to work even harder.

Previously, PTI leaders Qasim Suri, Firdous Shamim Naqvi, and Saifullah Abro had also been appointed as senior vice presidents. However, last month, Marwat faced legal issues as a case was registered against him, accusing him of using social media to incite the public against state institutions.

The charges included sections 120-B (punishment for criminal conspiracy) and 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

In a surprising development in September, internal discord emerged within the PTI legal team when Marwat accused Shoaib Shaheen, a fellow member, of being a “traitor” and leaking confidential information from their meetings.

Marwat’s suspicion stemmed from Shaheen’s sudden appearance within the party ranks in late April, raising concerns about his presence at a legal committee meeting held at PTI’s headquarters in Bani Gala.
