A new survey by IRIS Communications has revealed that over half of the survey takers believe that Imran Khan is still the most capable leader to save Pakistan from the current socio-economic crisis.
According to the details, the survey, which has kept tabs on public sentiments throughout 2022, in its December edition revealed that 56% of poll takers reposed full confidence in PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Pakistan is facing an intense economic disaster which was exacerbated by the floods. However, the nation still believes that Imran Khan’s strong leadership can steer the country away from disaster.
Pertinent to mention that Imran Khan’s ranking as the most capable leader faced a decline of 3% from November to December, however, his ranking was still the highest of all the political leaders. Interestingly, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who already had a very low score, received no votes for December 2022.

The IRIS survey also showed that 79% of the poll takers believed that Pakistan is heading in the wrong direction and 71% demanded snap polls. Imran Khan has time and again demanded early elections as he believes it is the only way to save Pakistan from the economic crisis it is currently in and for which he has blamed the government. Following Imran Khan’s narrative, the majority of the public is also in favor of early elections.
59% of the poll takers believe that their financial burden has worsened in the past year. Pertinent to mention that Pakistan’s economy faces low foreign exchange reserves and large fiscal and current account deficits which were exacerbated last August by severe flooding.
