Imran wants say in Care Taker Appointment

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf  Chairman Imran Khan wants to have a say in the Appointments of Care Taker Governments at the National and Provincial Levels, as he sees it the only option to have Free & Fair Elections.

Imran Khan criticized the Election Commission of Pakistan’s right to choose Care Taker Prime Minister and Chief Minister, and said the Election Commissions are meant to maintain a check over Governments during Elections and to ensure Non-Interference and Neutrality.

"If Election Commission of Pakistan appoints a Care Taker Government, it will divest itself from performing the task of ensuring Free, Fair and Transparent Elections. Therefore, the right to appoint Care Taker Government shall be given back to the Politicians, who are actually contesting the Polls." Imran Khan said.

Calling the Twentieth Amendment a Fraud and Violation of the Constitution and Democratic Principles, Imran said the Amendment condones Elections carried out against the Provisions of the Constitution, and questioned how could you hold a Free, Fair and Transparent Election without considering Parties outside the Parliament (Although, PTI Leader Awais Leghari is still a Member of National Assembly)?
