Lahore: Some nine million people have become members of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf, a party leader claimed on Monday.
"People are showing great interest in the membership campaign and so far, about nine million people across the country have become Tehrik-e-Insaf members," party spokeswoman Andleeb Abbas told a news agency.
She said: "The membership campaign will continue till next month and we expect another half a million more people to join the party."
The party has also decided to hold its internal elections in September.
"Elections will be held for each and every position so that nobody can question new office-bearers who will take the party into the next general election," Abbas said.
