Election Commission not working up to the mark; says Imran Khan

Monday, January 28th, 2013 6:35:21 by

Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has said that Election Commission is not working up to the mark right now and must ensure strict implementation of rules and regulations.


While addressing a press conference here today, Khan said that change can only come through free and fair elections. Regarding the constitution of an interim government, Khan stated, “Interim Prime Minister must not be from any of the political party.”


“Interim PM must respect the decision of courts and should not engage or sign agreements with international financial institutions.” Khan also expressed his disapproval over the inclusion of Mianwali into the new province.


“People of Mianwali are protesting against any impending move to include Mianwali into the Bahawalpur-South Punjab province,” he said.


When asked about the recent survey of International Republican Institute (IRI), Khan said, “Popularity of political parties are always dynamic and changing.”


“PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz) had an approval rate of 62% in 2009 and now it is at 32%, PPP (Pakistan Peoples’ Party) was at 50% approval rate after elections and now it is at 14%,” Khan said.


He also questioned the intentions of conducting the survey. He asked, “Why the survey doesn’t reveal the most popular politician in Pakistan now as it used to do before?”

    We Pakistanis should now concentrate our energy to support Imran Khan to power in the next general elections as others have so far failed to solve our problems like rising crimes, rising inflation, rising cost of living,rising poverty, rising corruption, rising religous exploitation, rising suicied bommbings etc.
    I suggest to Imran Khan to adopt a motto to change the failed Anglo Saxon Police and Judicial system based on more paper work and endless litigation under which no criminals are punished. We need Shurta type police and Summary courts to punish the guilty quickly. Nationalise all Masjid and Madressahs as Islam is state subject and promote reading of translation of Quran in schools/Madressahs to make us better and practical Muslims to end reeligious exploitation, misguidance, extremism,groupings and parties, sectarianism, etc. Thanks.
