Imran Khan confident PTI will win upcoming elections

DAVOS: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan believes that his party will win the upcoming general elections and they will be able to see off the “two family businesses” running Pakistan, a Gulf News report has quoted him as saying.

Khan, who is at the World Economic Forum in Davos, said that even Prince Charles had more government experience than Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. He said Bilawal had to change his name to Bhutto so that he could become the leader-in-waiting of the PPP.

The PTI chief was certain that the large number of young voters who will participate in the elections for the first time will help him take the polls. The total number of registered voters is close to 90 million, with 40 million of them young enough to vote for the first time.

When asked why his party had refused to join Tahirul Qadri’s long march in Islamabad, Khan said that they wanted to achieve change legally and did not want to destroy the legal structure of the country.

When we formed we said that we would respect the law, and the constitution.

Qadri had lead four days of street protests in the heart of the capital aimed at forcing the government to resign. The government and the cleric had later come to an agreement that stated his party will have some say over the formation of a caretaker government ahead of elections this spring.

The PTI chief did, however, believe that his party could carry out a bigger march if it wished to do so. He said the party had a membership of 10 million people, out of whom seven million were instantly accessible.

If we asked them to march they will, but we want to win through the votes of the people. We want to stay within the law and the structures of the country.

    Well done IK for representing Pakistan at this important forum.The absence of our President, Prime minister and leader of the main opposition party lay bare this fact that these self proclaimed champions of democracy and economy lack the knowledge and expertise to conduct themselves on the World Economic Forum. On the contrary the former military ruler General Musharraf and his prime minister Shaukat Aziz gave much importance to this forum by regularly attending its meetings.

Bankers, hedge fund operators, private equity managers mingle with people like Kissinger and other odious characters to work out new ways to further exploit and control the poor countries of the world.

Thus status quo will prevail as rural seats will remain with incumbent parties, give or take 5%. Kaptaans 10 million voters would work in a proportional representation system. Does not work in first past the post system. His 10 million voters are too dispersed to form large winning blocks in majority of constituencies. Good luck PTI.

    My only apprehension is right now that Imran Khan is making tall claims like any other political leader does before the date of election, but will he stick to his words once he is abke to form PTI government in Pakistan, more particularly in terms of serving the masses collectively and a comman man individually?

    It is true electables matter a lot in Pakistani elections. However, there is not just one electable in a constituency. In most constituencies there are three or four electables. If top electable goes to PNL N or PPP, still PTI can attract the 3rd electable. Adding PTI’s party vote, many of these third electables can win too. And PTI already has top electables in many constituencies too. So things are not that bleak for PTI. It just needs to maximize its party vote. It has 7 million members to start with. If it can convert this number to 10 million votes, it can sweep the elections.

Even Afghanistan has chosen himself a good political system but we opted for british system which is indirect and closes the doors on fresh people being elected to the top political offices. In direct democracy “Presidential System”, people like IK will have good chance winning elections at ease. He should educate people about Presidential System but he has yet to come up with such reform in the system and only wasting his time in protecting his friends Taliban by condamning drone and arranging big public meetings which can’t translante into elections victory.

I would like to see the impending change he touts, but I have yet to see how he is going to bring about the change. He may win a few seats but that is about it – masses of 11 to 16 year old in jalsas can bring out numbers but they cannot vote. IK has not shown any difference, he has the same old faces – in fact losers of their previous parties, all his original supporters have left him. He has not shown any shadow government, he has not come out with any list of issues facing Pakistan and in what priority he will deal with them. He talks about eradicating corruption within 90 days but does not show how, he cannot take the law in his own hands – there is a due process of the law and sometimes it takes years. He is threatening to take on a very well established chaos, where are those angels who are going to assist him. Voters would like to see all that before they elect someone – he has failed to do that. Right now he is no different from the rest – a lot od promises, hot air and aspirations. Good luck, and I sincerely mean it.

    Like always, IK is tragically confused and contradictory in his comments. He is so comfortable in climbing on the shoulders of youth for the sake of his popularity but is contemptuous of young leaders. Since IK could not come up with any corruption or other usual charges against Bilawal, he has stooped low and tried to make fun of a novice in politics. I wonder how this man can pay respect to those he is using to gain popularity and votes i.e the youth.

    I do appreciate his approach of bringing a change in a lawful manner but his definition of law is susceptible to change. At one time he went to England to start legal proceedings against the leader of MQM and after a couple of years he was comfortably holding a rally in Karachi with the blessings of the same party…without any qualms of conscience.

    Mr. IK has always been criticizing the politicians of this country ad nauseam but is never concerned when anybody from the same breed of politicians joins his party. I always wonder how he purify them of their past deeds, which he had always abhorred, at least publicly. I feel sad to say but in my view, which may be wrong, Mr. IK is a demagogue at best NOT A LEADER.

    No one can sweep the election in prevailing situation . Can IK tell the country how he will be able to form a govt. If there will be a result in fevour of a collision govt . On the other hand other parties have a wide options with them . Only a jehadee group will support him but such group are loosing ground in the country .

    i have been to 20+ different countries across the globe in last 3 years ..Pakistan is definately one of the most gifted country in all repects …i wish and pray the PTI wins this election and restore Pakistan to its due glory …I see no reason why we cant be turned around in 2 years ,…we have the ability to stun the nations of the world ..we only need masses to realise the potential and work towards it … first step is to dump the current leadres including PPP, PML , MQM etc ….Recommend

    @Dr.A. K.Tewari:

    My dear Doctor, please be known that you are committing blasphemy of biblical proportions by asking so many questions about Imran Khan, his politics, how he would win the elections and with whom he would form a coalition government. IK’s word are in fact a series epiphanies which dawn upon him from the outer heavens. If he along with his cult worshipping army say that PTI would win hands down, than we the mere mortals have got no choice but to take their words on their face value – without pondering too much on merit ;)

    To all doubters/haters of Imran Khan,
    Please give me one accomplishment of PPP or PML or the Mouvlis. The youth of pakistan are supporting PTI like they were with Quaid e Azam. Change always comes from fresh ideas. At least give him a chance than be critical. All those criticizing Imran are backes of status Quo PPP/PML/MQM and others who are looking at the power slippling out of their grip and can do nothing about it. May Allah help us in this transition. Imran is talking eveloution instead of reveloution. I am hopeful after decades of incompetent and or corrput leaders.

    I would love to see PTI win the election, but I just can’t see it. Nawaz ‘Thief’ Sharif is the front runner who looks most likely to.

    The PPP and PMLN have stole billions already from the people of Pakistan over the years if you people vote for Nawaz Sharif then you deserve everything you get.

    PTI is the only option as another win for Sharif then you will face more years without jobs, poor economy, poor health, high food prices more deaths, robberies etc and sooner or later the Army will rule again

    I am not a registered with PTI neither did I vote before coz most of the time I lived outside of Pakistan. Previously many of our leaders promised us so many things but non of them were fulfilled. Now Imran khan is here, so what do you think we should do
    1) should we judge him and his party based on our previous leaders actions
    Or
    2) should we judge him based on his own history.
    I don’t know about you but I will go with option # 2 coz his own history is bright I.e
    A) he promised to make a cancer hospital and he did it.
    B) he promised university and he did it and it is now one of the best university in Pakistan.
    Keep in mind that he did all this with out holding any Gov position.
    So come on guys and gals lets not lose our last hope……..let’s give him a chance. Let’s say if Imran khan does not fulfill his promise what will be the worst case sanario? It will be still better than both PPP and PML. Think about it, your vote counts and you will be liable to Allah Almighty on the big day, your one vote can bring a change into the lives of billions.
    Be open minded… I have a lot to write but coz of space I cant…wish to all the best
