Bilawal foresees general elections in 2017
LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari says he feels that the general elections in Pakistan will take place in 2017 (instead of scheduled 2018), ARY News reported.
Speaking to media at Bilawal House Lahore, Bilawal said he was not ‘threatening like Imran Khan’, and vowed that his party would go ahead with its plan of protest on December 27 if PPP’s four demands were not met.
He hoped that PPP would emerge victorious in the next elections.
The PPP chairman said he believed that masses were not being provided justice. “I am not a common politician. I am son of the martyred,” he added.
I will, he said, soon become a Lahore resident in January and begin political activities here.
He claimed that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf defected PPP’s candidate into its fold in Jhang by-election but it still lost the poll.
He underlined that he won’t disclose his political strategy.
Bilawal stressed upon the government to accept his four demands and threatened to enforce his protest plan in case government didn’t respond.
Bilawal’s four demands are:
To implement the resolution regarding China-Pakistan Economic Corridor
To re-constitute a parliamentary committee on national security
To pass Panama Bill drafted by Pakistan People’s Party
To immediately appoint the foreign minister
