Imran demands treason case against Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday predicted general elections might be held this year if the proposed judicial commission into poll rigging takes up the cases pending in election tribunals.

Khan while talking to media took an exception to the government, former Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and former Supreme Court judge Khalilur Rehman Ramday for alleged fraud in the 2013 election.

“We will prove that Iftikhar Chaudhry and Ramday controlled returning officers,” Khan claimed.

He went on to say that former CJP Chaudhry committed treason against democracy and should be tried under Article Six of the constitution.

Khan once again ruled out the possibility of PTI’s return to National and provincial assemblies and warned that any member who violates party policy will be ousted from the PTI.

“We will go to assemblies if the judicial commission declares the election legitimate,” Imran Khan said, adding that the probe commission would not be able to do anything if it is established on the basis of the N-league draft. He said the PML-N was scared of the judicial commission.
