Imran Khan anticipates big ‘goodbye reception’ for PM next week
As the Supreme Court is to take up highly anticipated Panama Papers implementation case on Monday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan says the next week is Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s last week in office.
While speaking to an American-based daily, Khan said he hoped there will be a big goodbye reception for the premier in Islamabad next week.
He said the long, dark night is finally over as his arch-rival PM Sharif is going to be removed from office. The top court having gone through Panama Joint Investigation Team (JIT) findings will order his removal under Article 62 and 63 of the country’s Constitution, he added.
Articles 62 and 63 of the 1973’s Constitution calls for disqualification of parliamentarians for being dishonest.
The PTI chief said that the premier will face criminal proceedings for lying to the court. The entire defense of the PM and his family in the case was a fraud, he asserted.
Khan said he expected snap elections as Sharif was going to be removed by the court.
Earlier while addressing a public gathering, Imran said that the PM had ruined national institutions to safeguard his corruption. “The coming week will decide whether Pakistan will be nation of dacoits or a Naya Pakistan,” he added.
Following the release of the JIT findings that the premier and his family members were involved in money laundering, Nawaz Sharif has been under immense pressure to step down, but he has resolved to stay in office, terming these findings a pack of lies and suppositions.
The pressure the incumbent government is facing can be gauged from back to back meetings, the premier has been holding with his close aides, the party leaders and coalition partners to tackle post JIT situation and devise a strategy to contest it findings in the apex court.
Following the JIT report, the premier took his cabinet and coalition partners into confidence over his decision to stay put and contest the findings in the apex court. The cabinet also endorsed his decision and rejected the report in its entirety.
Afterwards, he called a meeting of the PML-N parliamentarians and secured their confidence on the matter.
