The problem now is all Pti leadership has left Imran Khan, even the ex PM and Pti party president left. The party is finished unfortunately.
And the 'party' was a one-man show anyway.
Expats and fanbois just don't understand how electioneering works in Pakistan: The leaders and the electables spend money, hold a lot of political gatherings and much more to 'mobilize' people to vote for them. It is big business and politicians don't part with their money easily. And hence the nastiness and violence, especially in Punjab. Biradery system, clan loyalties, threats, family ties, inducements.... a lot has to happen before a candidate wins. Cheating and rigging can only help so much in Pakistan otherwise Imran wouldn't have lost the byelections leading up to April 2022 and wouldn't have won the byelections after April 2022.
The PTI fanbois' idea that Imran Khan is some Salahuddin or Superman marching up and down from Karachi to Khyber on a horse to win the elections is laughable. Even his personal popularity will decline as the propaganda builds up and people realize that Imran Khan is history for at least next few years.
