Canada Global (Web News) Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and a former prime minister, stated on Friday that he is not in contact with the ruling class “at the moment”
At his Zaman Park mansion in Lahore, Khan stated in a speech to prominent journalists that “the establishment is a reality and only it can play its role for the supremacy of law.”
He claimed that the former chief of army staff (COAS) always advised him to concentrate on the economy rather than his opposition parties and their accountability, saying, “I used to stay in touch with [former chief of army staff General Qamar Javed] Bajwa, but he always asked me to think in a particular direction.”
The PTI leader claimed the coalition government wants to postpone general elections in response to a query about the existing political situation in Punjab and the determination of the government, which is led by the Pakistan Democratic Movement, to hold elections as planned.
He asserted that Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and Asif Ali Zardari, the co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), are avoiding the general elections because they are terrified of him.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) stated last week that it would be unable to hold the general elections as planned without the final digital data of the seventh census by March 31 of the following year. The next elections, according to the poll’s organising body, are anticipated to take place in the country in October 2023.
