PTI got a marginal lead in a PMLN stronghold in the Abbottabad local elections, but couldn't bring its mayor in Abbottabad[2][3]

PTI dissident Sardar Sher Bahadur who has been ex-district president for the party was refused party ticket to contest local elections, thus competed as Independent candidate. He later secured support from PMLN and PTI forward bloc and got elected as mayor of Abbottabad.[4] He was unseated by ECP for defection[5] but Peshawar high court has suspended ECP's decision[6] Moreover they have filed a case against the provincial government for demanding their budget. They have been succeeded in that case. Now that district government has been given their required budget.
