Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehrekk-i-Insaf party(PTI), is Pakistan’s richest political entity with assets worth over 375 million rupees. The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) provided details of 81 political parties and the data showed that assets of the PTI had increased by 220 million rupees in one year due to massive funding by overseas Pakistanis, mostly by those living in Britain, the US and Canada.
PTI’s chairman and Pakistan prime minister Khan provided an affidavit that the party did not get any funding from any illegal source or the banned group. The party is facing a case filed in 2014 about the alleged corruption in foreign funding. According to the data, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif is the second richest party with assets valued at over 253 million rupees.
