Imran Khan Names Ali Amin Gandapur For KP CM slot

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has nominated Ali Amin Gandapur as his party's candidate for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's (KP) chief minister.

"KP's chief minister will be Ali Amin Gandapur," stated the former prime minister while addressing the media in Adiala jail, where he is now serving a series of sentences.

Khan, whose party won 84 seats in the KP Assembly, is in a strong position to establish the government. In the National Assembly, PTI-backed candidates gained the most seats with nearly 90, followed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) with 75.

The PTI founder also dismissed the idea of creating a coalition government with the PML-N, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).

However, Khan stated that he has asked his party leaders to hold negotiations with parties other than these three. "Those who have been brought to rule are the biggest money launderers," he claimed.

Khan stated that the general elections held on February 8 will restore economic stability to the country.

He also stated that he realized his party had won the elections when PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif postponed his victory speech. "Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz have lost both elections," he added.

He further stated that PTI leader Aliya Hamza obtained more than 100,000 votes while in jail.

When asked if his party planned to establish a government in the province or the center, Khan stated that they would first challenge the election results.

"We will also approach the Supreme Court against the election results," he announced.

The former premier stated that they have not decided on a name for the prime minister's slot and would consider it.

Meanwhile, the PTI founder said the court will hear a plea to transfer his wife, Bushra Bibi, to Adiala jail. She was sentenced to ten years in jail for the Toshakhana case and seven for the unlawful marriage case.
