To kick off talks, Imran wants Nawaz to resign

ISLAMABAD: For starting negotiations with the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Federal Government, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Wednesday said talks can be held after the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

In a media statement, Imran Khan said after the resignation of Nawaz Sharif, the Supreme Court will have to come forward as a surety. “Nawaz Sharif’s stepping down remains top on our agenda,” he added.

He said Supreme Court is the only institution to dispense justice and if the apex court makes a decision it will be acceptable to his party.

Imran Khan said Lahore’s Model Town tragedy and rigging in elections are two separate issues.

He said even Hosni Mubarak, former president of Egypt, used to hold elections but the country never witnessed true democracy.
