Jamat-e-Islami (JI) leader Sirajul Haq resigned as party chief after the recent election loss. He took responsibility for the defeat and announced his resignation on social media.
The party’s Central Secretary Information confirmed this decision and stated that an emergency meeting of the central council will be held on February 17 to discuss the resignation.
محنت اور کوشش کے باوجود کامیابی نہین دلا سکا، الیکشن میں شکست کی ذمہ داری قبول کرتے ہوئے جماعت اسلامی کی امارت سے استعفی دے دیا ہے۔

Despite winning some seats in Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan assemblies, JI failed to secure any seats in the National Assembly. Sirajul Haq had been leading the party since 2014 but stepped down after serving for a decade.
Additionally, Hafiz Naeemur Rehman, a JI member, also announced his resignation from a provincial assembly seat, alleging election rigging.
