Pak Poll Body Demands Apology From Imran Khan For Code Violation

Pak Poll Body Demands Apology From Imran Khan For Code Violation

Khan is the likely next prime minister.

Talking to United States acting Ambassador to Pakistan John F. Hoover who called on him at his Banigala residence on Wednesday, the prime minister-in-waiting said Pakistan and the USA had witnessed many ups and downs in their relationship, which were the outcome of trust deficit between the two countries.

Imran Khan expressed concerns over the alarming human rights situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

When it comes to humanitarian issues, India and Pakistan are not so actively engaged, however, the government has responded positively to Pakistan's decision on the release of Indian prisoners and fishermen on 13th August on the eve of Imran Khan's swearing.

Earlier, on July 30, the ECP had sought a written reply from Imran, who is touted to be the country's next prime minister after his party witnessed a resounding triumph in the July 25 general election.

He discussed various issues with Khan including the bilateral relationship and also presented him a cricket bat signed by the Indian cricket team.

Khan who was to take oath on 11 August, is now expected to take up the office of prime minister on 18 August, according to Pakistani media reports quoting PTI senator Faisal Javed. He hoped that the next SAARC Summit will be hosted in Islamabad.

The country's caretaker prime minister announced Thursday that the National Assembly will meet on August 13 when newly elected lawmakers will be sworn in.

Pakistan went to polls on 25 July and the PTI had emerged as the single largest party with 116 seats, after the ECP released the complete results for 270 of 272 National Assembly (NA) constituencies.

Bisaria, too, hoped that a new chapter in the Pakistan-India relations would soon begin.

Javed also confirmed that three former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Novjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar had been invited to the oath-taking ceremony.

Imran Khan and Hoover had exchanged views on Pak-US relations and matters of mutual interest. The most significant aspect of the conversation was Modi's unambiguous willingness to improve his country's ties with Pakistan.
