Davos: Pakistan’s former cricket star turned politician, Imran Khan on Thursday said that he was more confident than ever that his party will sweep in the upcoming national elections.
On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, Khan said that he will become the country’s next leader and he was optimistic the country wants change.
He claimed that 40 million young Pakistanis would vote for the first time, out of an electorate of 90 million, and that they represent a ”big vote for change.”
He further accused media for receiving huge amounts from those who wanted to maintain status quo in the country. The money is being used to Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf party, and conducting a propaganda campaign accusing him of being pro-Taliban, he added.
