ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday welcomed the move taken by in-office Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to bring constitutional modification to eradicate ‘horse-trading’ in upcoming senate elections.
Imran’s statement is a response at PML-N’s move at forming two committee to consult political parties regarding constitutional amendment, under which, if passed, the upcoming Senate elections would be held through show of hands.
Meanwhile, his remarks came after a day when Federal Minister for Information Senator Pervaiz Rashid appealed PTI Chairman Imran Khan to help the government in halting ‘horse-trading’ in the wake of upcoming Senate elections.
Imran was talking to media representatives when he appealed the government to implement its own recommendation for holding senate elections above board through show of hands. On this occasion, Mr. Khan deplored the fact by expressing that secret balloting in Senate elections, in the past, led to horse-trading in the country.
Just before a while to take off for Dubai, the PTI chairman told media that his party had convened an international investment conference at striving to bring foreign investment in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where his party is leading of the coalition government.
“An office will be set up in the Chief Minister office which would address the problems of investors,” said Imran Khan.
