Pakistan Elections: Army chief Pitches for coalition government, Imran’s party calls for protest

 Amid the delay in election results in Pakistan, the Imran Khan-led party has called for a nationwide protest today. 

Pakistan Army Chief General Asim Munir has backed Nawaz Sharif’s plea to his rivals to help form a coalition government. Munir called the political parties to form a “unified government of all democratic forces”. With no clear victor so far, Sharif’s PML-N and Imran Khan’s PTI are falling short of a majority. Although Sharif said earlier that his party is now in talks with Bilawal Bhutto’s party to form a coalition government, Dawn reported the latter as saying that the PPP has not had any official conversation with the PML-N and Imran Khan’s PTI on the matter.

Former PM Imran Khan called for protests throughout the Country to preserve the sanctity of Elections.

Apart from all the chaotic situation revolving around government formation in Pakistan the Election Commission of Pakistan has ordered re-polling in around 52 polling stations amid allegations of rigging, which will take place on February 15.
