KARACHI: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership has nominated #FixIt founder and patron Alamgir Khan to contest by-polls on the vacant seat, NA-243 in the city, vacated by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman and Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Imran Khan won on five seats following recent General Elections in 2018 on July 25.

However, he only retained home seat of NA-95 Mianwali and left the other four, including NA-243.

Alamgir is the founder of a social awareness campaign started in Karachi to cover open manholes.

#FixIt gained attention in 2016 after Alamgir spray painted a picture of former chief minister of Sindh, Syed Qaim Ali Shah, on the road and manholes to draw attention of the government.

PTI’s Imran won this seat from former Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan’s (MQM-P) MNA Ali Raza Abidi.
