After Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Hamza Shahbaz defeated Pervez Elahi in the runoff election for Punjab Chief Minister in the Punjab Assembly; PTI chairman Imran Khan addressed the audience.
With the deputy speaker’s rejection of the 10 votes cast for the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q), Hamza was able to secure victory.
The events of today in the Punjab Assembly took him by surprise. “At this point, all eyes are on the Supreme Court (SC). In a democratic government, the moral authority rests with Parliament rather than the army.”
Khan also criticized Asif Zardari, the leader of the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP), who was accused of ‘horse-trading’ in the run-up to the election for Punjab Chief Minister.
“The national hero, Asif Zardari, has been a notorious thief for thirty years. When Zardari utilizes the money of the people of Sindh to buy souls, he effectively conducts a funeral for democracy “said the previous prime minister.
In any other society, he said, severe penalties would be imposed on MPs who engaged in horse-trading. I’d want to make a call to the people of the world to join me in peacefully protesting the events in the Punjab Assembly tonight.
Following the rejection of votes cast for the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid by the Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker, Hamza Shahbaz, leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), was reelected as CM of Punjab.
The PTI and PML-joint Q’s candidate, Pervaiz Elahi, garnered 186 votes, while Hamza Shahbaz received 179 votes. Even yet, Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari nullified 10 PML-Q votes, bringing the total to 176.
In the meantime, former Pakistani foreign minister and PTI vice chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi has also criticized the Deputy Speaker’s decision.

Despite footage showed Yousaf Raza Gillani’s son engaging in electoral fraud during the recent Senate elections, the PTI president claimed that no action was taken against the horse-trading of members.
“We’ve vanquished the government, the parties, and the crooked election board. This Chief Minister of Punjab election took place while Asif Ali Zardari was in the province. I knew quite well that Zardari used stolen public cash to buy off people’s consciences.”
“These folks are mobsters, not lawmakers. Even though Article 63A stipulates the execution of the parliamentary party’s choice, I was astonished to see what happened in the Punjab Assembly today. The letter against the 25 traitors was sent by PTI via the parliamentary leader.”
