PESHAWAR, 10 November: Reiterated his demand of holding early general elections in the country, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said it will save and strengthen democracy.

“With economic disaster looming and a complete paralysis of governance, Pak needs early elections to save and strengthen democracy,” Imran said in one of his tweets while commenting on the World Bank’s report on Pakistan’s economy.

The PTI chief criticized the PML-N government and said that the World Bank report painted a grim picture of Pakistan’s economy.

“The WB Report projected that Pakistan will miss all key macro indicators’ targets set for this fiscal year, notably fiscal deficit, current account deficit and annual economic growth rate,” Imran Khan tweeted.

Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif, meanwhile, reacted to the demand of the PTI chief, saying, he should not think about early elections and instead focus on governance in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
