Imran Khan pins hopes on judiciary following key remarks by CJP

Says judiciary can uphold the supremacy of constitution

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan is pinning all hopes on the judiciary after the country’s top judge wieghed in on the country’s political situation on Thursday.

Imran Khan spoke to a group of senior journalists at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore and said that only the judiciary could uphold the supremacy of the constitution.

He said the government was not interested in holding fresh elections and he was pinning all hopes on the judiciary for election to be held within the time period stipulated in the law.

Imran Khan also discussed a proposed all-parties conference being planned by the government to deal with the issue of terrorism following terror attacks in the country, including a major bombing earlier this month that left at least 84 people dead in Peshawar.

Khan said the PTI will decide about attending the conference but first the government needs to convene it.

He said an agreement with the IMF will unleash a new wave of inflation in the country.

The PTI chairman said that PMLN had launched Maryam Nawaz as ‘Mrs Nelson Mandela’ — or a feminine version of Mandela – but the plan had failed.

Imran Khan said Nawaz Sharif would get a better idea of his popularity once he returned to the country.
