ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman Imran Khan said Tuesday that the government should hold general elections immediately. “The solution to the present crisis is free and transparent general elections,” Khan said.
Talking to mediamen here on Tuesday, Imran Khan said that the PTI did not consider Yousuf Raza Gilani as the Prime Minister of Pakistan following his conviction in the contempt of court case.
The PTI chairman also announced a march in Islamabad on May 6 to show solidarity with the judiciary and if the Prime Minister failed to implement Supreme Court orders a protest march would also be held.
Khan also criticised the PML-N, claiming that they had backtracked from their earlier commitments. “If you want us to join your movement, you should first resign from the assemblies,” Khan said in reference to the PML-N.
On Monday, PML-N President Nawaz Sharif while announcing his party’s protest movement against the government said he was willing to join hands with the PTI and other opposition parties.
