LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran khan has said that elections and not the military, are the way out for Pakistan in these times, Express News reported on Thursday. He was speaking during a press conference in Lahore.
“I cannot say whether elections will take place or not, anything can happen right now,” said Khan. “But whatever the government does, I cannot see a way out of this quicksand other than elections.”
Answering a question on the issue of a possible Martial Law, Khan said, “There should not be a role of the military in forming a government in the country,” adding that the democratic process was the solution as it is within the constitutional boundaries.
Khan, speaking on tensions between the government and the Supreme Court said, “We see a clash between the two in the near future.”
“Raja Rental was made the prime minister for protecting Zardari’s corruption,” said Khan, adding that he too, like Gilani, would “protect the corruption” and not write a letter, which would lead to a clash between the two institutions.
“For protecting their corruption, they will say that democracy is in danger,” said Khan, adding that their previous attempt at “discrediting” the court had failed and that they would try to do that again.
“If they do so again, InshaAllah we will take part in a street movement together,” said Khan.
