Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) USA has hired a firm Fenton/Arlook LLC for six months starting from August 1 for the purpose of media relations.
The purpose of this agreement between PTI USA and Fenton/Arlook LLC is to get communication services.
Fenton/Arlook will provide PR services, including briefing journalists, placing articles, arranging interviews, and advising on social media. The hiring of this firm is only limited to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf USA.
The firm will charge a $25,000 retainer fee per month plus expenses. A payment of two months of fees in advance, or $50,000, plus an expense advance of $5,000 was due on or before August 10, 2022, to cover work in August and September 2022.
PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry while responding to early reports of PTI hiring a lobbying firm said, “I have asked for the Urdu translation of the papers so that few journalists and ministers can understand that this is not a lobbying firm but a media relations firm engaged by PTI USA to highlight its point of view in the media. Such firms build relationships between media and the party.”
