PTI opposes fresh charges in May 9 cases against Imran Khan and other leaders

Fresh charges

LAHORE/ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has strongly opposed the inclusion of new provisions in the May 9 cases. The party has called on the Supreme Court to take notice of the fresh allegations leveled against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and other party members.

The addition of these new provisions in the May 9 cases appears to be an effort to protect the actual wrongdoers involved in these incidents.

The PTI spokesperson urged the apex court to investigate the inclusion of serious charges like sedition against PTI.

PTI opposes fresh charges of sedition against Imran Khan and other leaders.

Additionally, the spokesperson called for the Supreme Court to take action against police officials who have misused the law.

They reiterated Imran Khan’s demand for a high-level judicial inquiry to determine the true culprits behind the May 9 incidents. PTI stressed that leveling serious charges such as incitement to rebellion against the leaders and members of PTI is an attempt at seeking extrajudicial revenge.

The ongoing illicit actions against PTI reveal questionable intentions aimed at sidelining Imran Khan from the political arena.

They pointed out that over 180 baseless cases were filed against the PTI chairman as part of a premeditated plan.

However, despite the PTI chief’s request for a high-level judicial inquiry into the riots, no progress has been made to date.

Regarding the ECP’s decision to hold elections in the last week of January, the spokesperson criticized the ECP for specifying an election month instead of an exact date.

They emphasized that the Constitution mandates the ECP to conduct elections within a fixed 90-day period after the dissolution of the assembly.

Regardless of the specific January date chosen by the election commission, it would fall outside the constitutionally prescribed 90-day timeframe, the spokesperson added.

The issue of holding elections within 90 days is currently before the Supreme Court, and the spokesperson stressed that the nation cannot accept any date beyond the stipulated 90-day period until the apex court reaches a final decision.

Moreover, the spokesperson criticized the election commission for failing to create the necessary environment, as mandated by the Constitution, for fair, transparent, and impartial elections.
