Pakistan opposition chiefs meet to discuss ousting of Imran Khan
The move comes after the country’s prime minister vowed to call corrupt politicians to account,
The top leaders of Pakistan’s major opposition political parties have met in Islamabad to discuss how to oust the government of prime minister Imran Khan over his alleged failure in handling the country’s economic crisis.
Wednesday’s multi-party meeting took place the same day that Pakistan’s currency dropped to an all time low of 160 rupees to the dollar.
Time for nation to stop glorifying money launderers who have damaged our nation & impoverished our ppl & now seeking refuge behind "democracy". No protocol shd be extended to them. Where are plunderers of public wealth given such special treatment? Time to treat them as criminals— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 12, 2019
It also came weeks after Mr Khan vowed to ensure that all corrupt politicians are held accountable for wrongdoing.
The gathering was also attended by leaders of the parties of former president Asif Ali Zardari and ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Mr Sharif is serving a prison term for corruption and Mr Zardari is in the custody of an anti-corruption body in connection with a money-laundering case.
Mr Khan came to power last year and enjoys a simple majority in parliament.
