PTI chief Imran Khan backs delimitation of constituencies

Extending his support to the remarks of the Supreme Court, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said that delimitation of constituencies should also be taken place in other parts of the country.


Speaking to the media at Lahore airport, the cricketer-turned-politician said that Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry was the only ray of hope for the deprived people of Pakistan as he had given historic verdicts.


He said that the tsunami, term used by PTI for change, could not be brought after winning by-election adding that Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto himself brought the change after clinching general elections.


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Tuesday emerged as the main beneficiary of by-elections in nine constituencies across the country as they clinched victory in six of them. PPP and PML-Q won one seat while an Independent candidate also won a Punjab Assembly seat.


Khan expressed hope that the upcoming general elections would be held free and fair under the independent Election Commission. He noted, “Hopefully the independent election commission will conduct free and fair polls.”


Khan wants the Pakistan army to monitor polling in any constituency the poll panel pin-points during the next general elections. The PTI chairman said change was possible only through ballot,


The general elections, due in early 2013, would begin an era of modern politics, which would end family-oriented politics in the country, he added.


He further said that laptop distribution would not earn fame for the PML-N leadership adding that the next general elections would prove who is more popular among the people.


Replying to a query about verdict of the apex court on construction of Kalabagh Dam, Imran said that the project should be made after removing grievances of all stakeholders.
