Prime Minister Imran seeks vote of trust from Congress after Senate angry

Prime Minister Imran Khan will seek a new vote from Congress after the ruling PTI lost Islamabad’s fierce senator seat to the joint opposition, Foreign Minister Shameh Mood Kuresh announced Wednesday. About the time of the press conference after the PTI’s defeat was confirmed, Qureshi said that after voting today, it should be clear who was standing where. “I think those who stand with Imran Khan can see from one side and those who don’t like the ideology of the PPP and PML-N,” said Kuresh, with several PTI ministers next to him. Includes Asad Umar, Shireen Mazari, Shafqat Mehmood and Fawad Chaudhry. He urged PTI workers to adhere to their belief that the PTI will compete with the opposition alliance, the Pakistani Democracy Movement (PDM). “They are united, but there is no ideological basis for unity. They do selfish politics… . I want to continue with that politics, but we’ll bury it,” he said. Earlier, Qureshi started a press conference, saying that today’s event proved Prime Minister Imran’s position, adding that this is not new, it is happening over the past few years. He went on to count political parties’ attempts to ensure transparency in the election process. He said the PTI has invited the opposition to move to an open ballot. [what they] I preached.” “We have informed the ECP that it is a constitutional obligation to ensure free and fair elections,” Qureshi added, adding that the ECP did not guarantee transparency. “As per our fear, video and audio appeared the night before the election, and Fawad Chaudhry tried to knock on the ECP’s door, but there was silence there.” The minister added that it was surprising that no one could attend at the ECP, although elections must be held the next day. At this point, they had a greater responsibility to ensure transparency in voting. “But we didn’t live up to the norm.” Kuresh said the struggle initiated by Prime Minister Im Ran was one of “good and bad,” adding that the prime minister has put countless efforts to change the political culture. “In this fight, the country is watching who stands where,” he said. “The voter who voted on the bat [PTI election symbol] The fight will continue.” In my opinion, today is a sad day for democracy. Those who claim to be the torches of democracy killed the principles of democracy.” Joint opposition candidate Yousuf Raza Gilani of the PPP was competing against PTI’s Abdul Hafeez Shaikh for the only general seat in the capital. He won the election by picking 169 votes, and Shaikh won 164 votes. 7 votes for seats were rejected, and there were reports that at least 2 PTI MNA votes were invalidated because they were not correctly marked on the ballot. Opposition Calls for PM’s Resignation At a press conference a little earlier, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari welcomed Gilani’s victory as the victory of all democratic forces in Pakistan. “[Prime Minister] Imran Khan must resign. This is not only a demand from the opposition, but from government members,” Bilawal insisted.
