ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court’s decision which declared Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani ineligible to hold office was a historic verdict, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday.

Speaking to the media in Islamabad, Imran said that even if a new prime minister is elected by the current setup, the problem would not be solved.

“The only solution left now is early election,” Imran said, adding that the current government had failed to do any good in the last four years and expecting something different from them now is out of the question.

Expressing frustration over the power crisis, the PTI chief said that he has decided to stand with the people and protest against loadshedding.

He announced a protest rally in Faisalabad on June 27 and said he will also visit other cities and protest along with the locals.

Every elected govt in Pakistan has always been dumped/changed/overthrown with the help from SC. From Justice Munir to Justice Nasim to PCO judges, there are no exceptions. In each incident the history has determined that the SC was wrong. To some who have no clue, the SC interprets the laws but has no powers to implement them. Again the implementation of its decision is in the hands of executive branch. Only in Pakistan the role of unelected paid govt servants generals and SC judges has become so powerful against the elected govt. This decision of PCO SC is only going to help the ruling party in the next elections with the silent majority in the rural heartland. The SC hounded pounded and finally chased the govt out of the office. Under these conditions how could they work for people?
