Imran doesn’t see elections happening anytime soon

Imran Khan

Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that he does not see general elections happening in Pakistan anytime soon.

Talking to senior journalists in Lahore, he said that for elections to happen, people pulling the strings behind the scene needed to agree rather than the government’s willingness to hold general elections.

“The results would not be good if some sort of political engineering is done during the elections,” he warned and added that the mandate of the largest party in the then East Pakistan (Bangladesh) was not recognised in 1970.

The former prime minister said that he was not in contact with the establishment at the moment. “General (retd) Bajwa did great injustice to this country. Our government had good working relations with him but corruption of politicians was of no substance to him,” he added.
