LAHORE: Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid on Thursday said that Pakistan might move towards early elections, but reiterated that Prime Minister Imran Khan would defeat the opposition’s no-confidence motion.
Addressing a press conference in Punjab’s capital, Rashid said that if the opposition has the support of some government members, PTI has also the backing of some lawmakers of political opponents.
“I want Pakistan and democracy to progress. The situation in the country is moving towards betterment with every passing day.”
He further said that allies are taking their time and hoped that they will decide to side with PM Imran Khan.
It merits mention that joint opposition seeks to remove Prime Minister Imran Khan through a no-confidence motion and has claimed support of required numbers of lawmakers to make the move successful.
The prime minister, however, has ruled out stepping down from office and vowed to counter every move the opposition throws his way.
