Tweeting on Tuesday, Imran Khan said, "The selection of the wrong candidates was the main reason for the failure. From now on, I will personally witness the next phase of elections across the country."

Inshallah PTI will emerge stronger. It may be recalled that the ruling party has been defeated in several places in the first phase of local body elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Sunday and it has lost to the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam in key tehsils of the province and even in the provincial capital. You agreed that the selection, including yours, was not good

Reacting to Imran Khan's tweet, PML-N spokesperson Maryam Aurangzeb while addressing the Prime Minister wrote, "You also accepted that the selection of selectors including you was not good. When votes and candidates are stolen, slogans, promises are false, looting market is hot and efficiency is zero, people are suffering from unemployment, inflation and poverty then this is what happened to Imran Mafia in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. If PTI weakens, the country will fall into the hands of wolves

On the other hand, Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry wrote in response to a tweet from Rana Imran Saleem, a PTI supporter, “If extremist parties like JUI are an alternative to PTI, then you are right. Put personal differences behind you in this situation and organize yourself under the leadership of Imran Khan If the PTI is weakened then the country will fall into the hands of wolves, he warned.

In addition, several leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), including Federal Minister Shibli Faraz, have termed this unexpected defeat as a sign of inflation and infighting.

Talking to Urdu News, local journalist Muhammad Riaz said that now Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam has won in 18 out of 64 tehsils of 17 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa while PTI has won in 15 tehsils and independent candidates are in the third position. And then the position of ANP and PPP is visible.

On the defeat in the local body elections, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz said, "PTI lost because PTI was competing with PTI. Had it not been so, it could have won in 14 districts."

"We have not been able to mobilize the workers in the local body elections. Now we will change our strategy in the next elections and establish party discipline," he said.

On the other hand, provincial labor minister Shaukat Yousafzai attributed the defeat in the local body elections to inflation. It is amazing that PTI has won so many seats. According to Qureshi Khattak, an expert on electoral and parliamentary affairs, people are expressing surprise at the victory of JUI or ANP while they are wondering how PTI got so many votes. He said that two governments came in PTI province and both failed to provide facilities to the people. Now it seems that the people's patience has run out, but it is still surprising that the PTI got a lot of votes.

Talking about the impact of these results on the future politics of PTI, he said that if the trend of decline of PTI has started after eight years, then I do not think that now PTI can reverse this wave. Will Secondly, if the opposition-winning local government officials are in government at the tehsil level in the next election, they too will be able to influence the election results as the administrative machinery will be in their hands.

Why PTI loses?

According to Muhammad Riaz, bureau chief of Nawa-e-Waqt newspaper in Peshawar, the reason for PTI's defeat was that the party was not mentally ready for the local body elections till the last moment. When the decision of the Supreme Court came to hold the elections, then the party could not show the enthusiasm that the JUI, ANP and PPP showed in its preparation.

He said that the opposition contested the elections by making statements of inflation and unemployment while the PTI worker was a substitute. The reduction of Rs 5 per liter in petrol price in the last few days has not had a positive effect on the people. Opposition candidates, on the other hand, were strong and campaigned with strong financial support while the ruling party was divided and people generally complained to the government. All of these factors contributed to the defeat.

Mahmood Jan Babar, a senior political analyst in the province, said that the main reason for the PTI's defeat in the local body elections was the dissatisfaction of voters with the government's performance. The government came to his province for the second time but they could not take any major revolutionary step in the province except the health card and the health card was also given to the people as an insurance policy."
