CEC Should Resign Otherwise Face Signature Campaign For His Removal Imran Khan

PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday demanded resignation from chief election commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja adding that his party will stage protest against the CEC across the country.

Addressing a gathering in Peshawar, former premier said that we will run a signature campaign against the CEC adding that we had said earlier look into the matter of foreign funding of all three parties together.

Imran Khan said that we are an independent state and we will not bow down to any other except God Almighty. He said that it is a movement of a real independence and we have to move forward.

The PTI Chief underlined the need for further strengthening state institutions and upholding the people’s rights.

He said the PTI would continue its peaceful struggle for democracy and weeding out the menace of corruption.

Addressing party workers here, the former prime minister said strong institutions and respecting the people’s mandate would guarantee a stable and prosperous Pakistan.

He said sustainable economic progress and prosperity in the country could not be achieved without a genuine democracy enjoying the masses’ support. Early elections was the panacea of all problems, he added.

Imran Khan claimed that the PTI had succeeded in steering the country out of the financial crisis after coming into power in 2018 and put the economy back on track. Its government had broadened tax net and kept prices of petroleum products under control despite international economic recessions in the wake of coronavirus pandemic, he added.

The PTI chief said his government launched crackdowns against the sugar mafia and provided much relief to poor farmers, resulting in record increase in the production of wheat, maize, rice, sugarcane and other crops last year.

He called for appointment of new Chief Election Commissioner and hearing of the foreign funding cases of all political parties.

He said his party would continue the peaceful political struggle for socio-economic empowerment of the masses, and not make any compromise on the country’s integrity, sovereignty and interests.

He urged the party workers to get ready for a long march.
