The PTI head will be the first individual in the nation to run for more than thirty seats after the core committee of his party voted to put him up as a candidate in the nationwide elections.
The decision would probably put more pressure on the ruling coalition since, if the PTI leader is successful in winning a majority of the seats, it might hurt the standing of the administration and give the Khan-led party an advantage in the upcoming Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa elections. When NA Speaker Raja Parvez Ashraf accepted the resignations of PTI MPs and Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rashid earlier this month, the NA seats became vacant.
After Khan was removed as prime minister in April of last year, the PTI resigned in large numbers, but just 11 resignations were accepted in July. The speaker started accepting their resignations later as the party attempted to retake the house, and in a matter of days, he accepted 113 more resignations, including the 33. In a by-election in October of last year that was considered as a direct confrontation between the former ruling party and the current ruling coalition of the PDM parties, which also won two seats, the former prime minister also established a record when he won six National Assembly seats for the PTI.
“PTI will stay on the political scene and enlist the support of the general public. Despite the fact that our adversaries were in power at the time, the people assured our mandate and [made] Imran Khan the winner when they had the chance in July of last year, Qureshi remarked.
On March 16, the country will send a loud and obvious statement that it fully trusts Imran Khan’s leadership and supports the PTI. The people will also express their disapproval of the group that has been forced upon us, he continued.
According to the former foreign minister, the central government is “afraid” of conducting elections in both provinces. “Political engineering is being done through the by-elections for the National Assembly.” Kerosene oil costs Rs189.83, light fuel costs Rs187, and diesel costs Rs262.80.
