PTI supporters protest delay in results – Latest News | World News – Times of India


ISLAMABAD: Amid fears of horse trading, PTI’s interim chief barrister Gohar Ali Khan said the winning independent candidates belonged to PTI and they wouldn’t join any alliance in defiance of the party’s whip.
PTI supporters blocked roads and held street demonstrations throughout Friday in parts of Punjab and the southern port city of Karachi in protest against Election Commission of Pakistan’s delay in announcing the poll results.
“We voted, although it turned out to be a selection. We are in the digital age, and yet we aren’t aware of the results nearly 24 hours after polling. Their excuse is that internet was down, but they were the ones who suspended it,” said Samia Jamil, a PTI supporter in Islamabad.
Former National Assembly speaker and Imran’s close aide Asad Qaiser alleged that the results were being altered, but PTI still came out on top.
Rauf Hasan, PTI’s information secretary, said the public had voted for Imran to be Pakistan’s next PM. “Power-wielders (alluding to the military establishment) must learn to respect the people’s choice,” he said, warning against the “deadly consequences” of trying to derail the mandate.
