ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is again gearing up for a protest movement to press the government for early elections as part of its political move to block the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to get a majority in the Senate next year.
The Senate elections are due in March next year as half of the lawmakers of the 104-member House will retire on March 11 after completion of their six-year term. The PML-N will be the major beneficiary of the next Senate elections as these will be held on the basis of the existing provincial assemblies.
While the tone of PTI chief Imran Khan is becoming very aggressive with each passing day, some of his close aides have again advised him to start a protest movement to press the government for early elections.
The PTI has already made a demand for early elections after the announcement of the Panama Papers case verdict
