Pakistan News: The issue of rigging in Pakistan's elections has reached America. It is being told that jailed former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Thursday urged America to raise its voice against the rigging in the recent general elections in his country. Imran Khan, who became Prime Minister in August 2018, was removed through a no-confidence vote in April 2022. Currently, he is lodged in Rawalpindi's Adiala Jail, facing punishment in several cases.

Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party has alleged that the February 8 general elections were not conducted fairly and the election results were rigged.

No party got majority

It is difficult for any of the three parties, including Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), to win a majority in the National Assembly in the general elections held on February 8. Required seats have not been found. Therefore, none of these parties is capable of forming a government alone.

More than 100 independent candidates won

More than 100 independent candidates supported by Imran Khan's party PTI won. But the party has alleged that there was rigging in the elections. PTI leader Asad Qaiser told media persons after a meeting of party leaders at Rawalpindi's Adiala Jail that the party has nominated Omar Ayub Khan as its prime ministerial candidate.

Voice should be raised against rigging

Kaiser said that Imran Khan has given the message that America should raise its voice against the alleged rigging in the elections. He (Khan) has said that America has not played its role properly. The PTI official claimed that Imran Khan's message is that America has a chance and it should raise its voice against rigging in elections.

American supporter of democracy

He said that if it (America) is a supporter of democracy then it should raise its voice. Meanwhile, the US on Wednesday called for ensuring a transparent election process in Pakistan and said that the will of the Pakistani people needs to be respected.
