Imran Khan to contest for all nine NA seats himself
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has announced to contest by-polls from all nine seats, vacated after the NA speaker accepted PTI MNAs’ resignation
According to the ECP schedule, the by-polls on the nine National Assembly seats would be contested on September 25.
In a meeting with senior journalists on Friday, the PTI has announced to contest elections from all nine constituencies himself. Elections would be held this year, government parties want to single him out, he said in the meeting.
‘Would fight against the rulers at every platform,” he added. The government alliance’s plans to disqualify him would never be completed, he said.
Imran Khan said that he made two major mistakes in his political career. He added that he cannot share the first one, but the second one was appointing Sikandar Sultan Raja as the ECP Chief.
The former premier added that two foreign countries offered him funding in the past but he refused. Leaders with popular support can not be eradicated, he added.
The government accepted the resignations of 11 PTI MNAs including Shireen Mazari, Ali Muhammad Khan, Ijaz Shah, Farrukh Habib, Shandana Gulzar, Fazal Muhammad, Fakhar Zaman, Abdul Shakoor Shad, Jameel Ahmed and Akram Cheema.
