Imran Khan urges supporters to take to streets to celebrate tomorrow. Following the verdict of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, declaring the ruling of the Punjab Assembly’s deputy speaker “illegal” and instating Pervez Elahi as the new chief minister of Punjab, PTI Chairperson Imran Khan called his supporters to take to the streets and celebrate tomorrow.
The court’s short order declared Elahi as the duly elected chief minister of Punjab as it ruled that he had obtained 186 votes compared to Hamza’s 179.
Taking to Twitter, the former prime minister said: “I appreciate our SC judges for standing firm and upholding the Constitution and law, against all manner of threats and abuse.”
He further thanked Barrister Ali Zafar and his team for fighting the PTI’s case in the top court. “I want to thank the people of Punjab for coming out in unprecedented numbers in by-elections against rigging,” wrote Khan.
