Judiciary being blackmailed to stop elections from happening: Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that his political opponents are blackmailing the judiciary in their bid to stop the elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa from happening within the constitutional limit of 90 days.

“The N-league [Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)] is threatening the judiciary. The judiciary is being blackmailed. The reason behind this is to stop the elections from taking place within 90 days,” the PTI chief said while addressing the nation via a video link from his Zaman Park residence on Thursday where he has been recuperating since he was injured in an assassination attempt in Wazirabad on November 3.

The former prime minister, whose government was removed through a no-confidence motion last year — a first in Pakistan’s history, blamed the PML-N for “buying judges” in the past.
