PESHAWAR: Jamaat-i-Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan  said on Sunday that to save Pakistan the government should announce early elections.

Hasan made this statement while addressing a public rally in Peshawar, and added that Pakistan should not have a president whose health is "unstable".

Hasan further accused the government of not implementing the Supreme Court orders.

Former JI chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Sirajul Haq and other JI leaders also addressed the gathering.

Ahmed threatened that if Nato supply routes were restored, JI will call for countrywide transport strike in protest.

Talking further about the Nato issue, Hasan said that peace in the region cannot be restored until the United States is forced to leave.

Jamaat e islami december 18th jalsa e inqilab was the biggest gathering of the people in peshawar history and ji staged a successful show of power which surprised many.The people of khyber pukhtun khwa seems to have been fed up with ruling ANP-PPP coalition government in khyber pakhtunkhwa.There was some support visible for imran khan tehrik e insaf but after joining of ex-q league people and political personalities who are known for changing loyalties or their past is tainted with misdeeds,people are loosing interests in imran khan way of politics and JI mammoth rally on december 18 shows that people in khyber pakhtunkhwa are now looking for change towards a more organised jamaat e islami.Recent electoral victories of islamists in egypt,tunisia and algeria have also boosted morale of ji activists
