imran khan rally

PESHAWAR, November 7: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Mr Imran Khan has said that the Supreme Court should investigate alleged rigging in the May 2013 elections and that his party would end the protest sit-in if rigging was not proved.

Addressing a rally last night, Mr Khan said he agreed on inquiry under a judicial commission but that the government should not interfere in the commission’s activities and that it should complete its work within a month.

Mr Khan said he believed that the rigging in the 2013 elections was the most serious one in the country’s history and that he would not end his protest till the Prime Minister Mr Nawaz Shaif resigned.

The Federal Information Minister Pervez Rashid has welcomed the statement of Mr Khan and said that the government had previously written to the Supreme Court to form judicial commission for probe but that the process could not progress because of end to negotiations between the PTI and government teams.
