ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan announced on Monday that he will hold a peaceful rally outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday, asking the Chief Election Commission (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja resigns.
Addressing members at the PTI national council meeting in the federal capital, the former prime minister asked the electoral commission not to hold the upcoming general election under any circumstances.
The party chairman said he will hold elections within his party after the general election to ensure the regime is worthy.
Khan said he would work on the party ideology as the members still don’t know about it.
“I realized in these four months that our party members don’t know his ideology,” he said.
Khan went on to say that PTI selected its leaders through the Insaf Student Federation (ISF) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by holding elections within the federation. “We will follow the same election process as the ISF to select leaders based on merit,” the former prime minister said.
Comparing his party to PML-N and PPP, Khan says there is no concept of deserving in these parties and that is why these parties have been downsized instead of growing.
The former Prime Minister said he wanted Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) for free and fair elections, but the Chief Electoral Commissioner (CEC) tried in every possible way to sabotage it.
“The ruling parties do not agree with holding elections through EVMs because they want to be strict about the elections. Before the Punjab by-election, our party was the only one prepared to prevent votes from being rigged,” he added. ”
There’s a big reason why Pakistan isn’t moving forward and it’s because these people are ideological and power hungry.” Their only motto is to preserve money and nothing more,” he added.
