Imran Khan’s Family Opts Out of Elections, Confirms Sister

“I will not contest the election, even if Imran Khan asks (me),” says Aleema Khan

Aleema Khan, the sister of Imran Khan, founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has announced that neither she nor any of Imran Khan’s sisters or his wife will be participating in the upcoming general elections scheduled for February 8 next year, as reported by The News on Friday.

While speaking to journalists outside the Islamabad High Court on Thursday, Aleema Khan stated that she has no intention of contesting the upcoming general elections. When asked if she would consider participating if Imran Khan requested it, she firmly responded, “I will not contest the election, even if Imran Khan asks me. I will not participate in the election.”

Responding to queries about the involvement of any other sister or Imran Khan’s wife, Bushra Bibi, in the elections, Aleema clarified, “None of us is contesting elections. We only come for the cases of the PTI founder.” She went on to express her belief that Imran Khan should not be treated like Bhutto, emphasizing the lack of a young generation during Bhutto’s time.

Aleema alleged that Nawaz Sharif, the leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), had appointed two umpires and was preventing players from entering the field. She claimed that the ongoing case against Imran Khan was a farce, and the speedy trial raised concerns that a death sentence might be pronounced by December 30.

Expressing skepticism about receiving justice from the Supreme Court, Aleema stated, “Our hope for justice is from Allah, and justice should also be expected from the Supreme Court, but what is happening is in front of everyone.” She concluded by saying, “If we do not get justice from there, we will get it from Allah.”
