Fauzia Kasuri is a Pakistani politician and is one of the central figures of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Career

Kasuri worked with Imran Khan to help raise money for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre. On 26 July 2011, she helped launch a women's wing of PTI in the United States. She currently lives in Islamabad.

Kasuri presided over the women's wing of PTI until 20 March 2013. She was disqualified from PTI elections for having dual nationality of Pakistan and the United States. She renounced her U.S. citizenship on 22 March 2013.

Resignation from PTI

She had voiced several complains against her party regarding her rank on priority list of reserved seats for women, in which her rank was below Dr. Shireen Mazari, Dr. Munaza Hassan and Ayla Malik, when PTI only won 10 seats from Punjab only the top two went to the parliament on reserved seats causing Kasuri to lash out on PTI leadership she soon announced that she will leave PTI but will not join PML-N another political party. Subsequently she left PTI and she was asked to join PML-N on the request of Mrs.Nawaz (Kalsoom Nawaz). She was criticized by many among PTI for making a fuss all in the name of a national assembly seat. Her claim of being a founding member of the party turned out to be false as the party released a press release which did not name her as a founding member. Imran Khan said in a statement on Twitter that the reserved seats had been awarded on merit.

Rejoin in PTI

She rejoined Party after meeting with Imran Khan.
