Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan Calls for Early Polls

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has again called for an earlier national election after his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) won majority of the state assembly seats in Punjab.

“The only way forward from here is to hold fair & free elections under a credible ECP. Any other path will only lead to greater political uncertainty & further economic chaos, “said Khan after the PTI party’s victory.

Khan has recently been organizing rallies and protests since his ouster and accused the Pakistani government of conspiring with the US against him.

“First of all, I want to thank our workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf and the voters of Punjab for defeating not only the PML-N candidates, but the entire state machinery, especially the oppression of the police and a completely biased Election Commission,” added Khan.

Khan has also blamed the current government for soaring inflation and gas prices.

“Our reserves have shrunk by half since PML-N came to power. Despite the agreement with IMF (International Monetary Fund) in sight, our rupee is declining,” said Khan.
