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.

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
