Imran Khan Presents SIX Demands for Negotiations; ‘PM Must Resign’ Tops the List

ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan, chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), proposed that the first condition of PRI for negotiation is the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Khan presented 6 demands before his committee starts the negotiations:

1. PM Nawaz Sharif must submit his resignation
2. Immediate electoral reforms
3. Reelection after the reforms
4. A neutral caretaker government, and not the one which wreaks ‘35 punctures’.
5. All election commissioners who managed last election must resign.
6. Accountability of officials who ‘colluded’ with PM Nawaz Sharif for the election rigging. They must be tried under Article 6 and imprisoned.

Khan assured that he will have the elections re-conducted if all opposition parties in KNP allege Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf led provincial government of rigging. He said that they are not afraid and they know their mandate is genuine. He criticized Khursheed Shah, the Opposition Leader, suggesting that he should rather serve as Nawaz Sharif’s personal secretary, for he is only supporting current government instead of acting as a true Opposition Leader.
