ISWNews Analysis Group: Following the uncertainty of the date of Pakistan’s national elections, the political conflict between Imran Khan and Shehbaz Sharif’s government has intensified.

The uncertainty of the date of Pakistan’s national elections by Shehbaz Sharif’s government has caused the anger and sharp reaction of Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan. In his recent statements, he has threatened to hold a protest march towards the city of Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. Imran Khan stated that the purpose of holding this demonstration is to defeat the US leadership’s project of carrying out a soft political coup in Pakistan and restoring the power of the people’s government in this country.

This warning comes while the Tehreek-e-Insaf party (led by Imran Khan) has won six out of eight seats in the mid-term elections of the Pakistani Parliament.

In this regard, Pakistan’s “Geo TV” channel wrote in an article: “If Imran Khan organizes nationwide and long-term protests in Islamabad and other cities of Pakistan, he will be hanged!” At the same time Imran Khan was threatened with hanging, Omer Sarfraz Cheema, the head of the federal government of Punjab state and a supporter of Imran Khan announced that he will arrest Rana Sanaullah as soon as he enters Punjab state.

Imran Khan’s conflict with Sharif’s government and his supporting parties started after Imran Khan’s impeachment in parliament and his dismissal on April. After this incident, the Tehreek-e-Insaf party is trying to win local and parliamentary seats and is trying to put pressure on the government to hold early national elections with protest rallies.

Holding demonstrations and gatherings of millions in Pakistan is not a new thing. The rallies in 2014 led to a four-month sit-in against Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad. After Imran Khan removal, he has proposed holding peaceful demonstrations several times, but every time he stopped them after the protesters reached the capital of Pakistan!
