Omar Sarfaraz Cheema is recently appointed as “Spokesperson of Imran Khan” which is a very important position to convey the message of Imran Khan to the nation. This appointment is the latest of a series of appointments made by PTI in last few weeks. Before Mr. Cheema, the Chairman PTI appointed Faisal Javed Khan head of marketing and social media. Mr. Ali Zaidi was appointed as President PTI Karachi. Hamza Ali Abbasi appointed as Cultural Secretary to PTI Karachi.
I think the appointment of Omar Cheema as Spokesperson of Imran Khan is a smart move. He is one of the founding members of the party, contested 1997, 2002, 2004 elections as PTI candidate. He was central information secretary and he was replaced by Mr. Shafqat Mehmood before elections 2013. But this did not turned Omar Cheema down and I saw him participating fully in all pre and post election party activities. He was in the front lines in all protests and sit ins. And now he has got another great responsibility and I think he deserves this and is one of the best candidates for the job.
Although there has been some criticism on some appointments but they appear to be good moves and party must organize itself in the best manner before the upcoming intra-party elections.
