Pakistani cricket legend Imran Khan was declared victory in a divisive general election in Pakistan
Speaking in a televised speeh, Imran Khan said God has given me a chance to come to power to implement that ideology which I started 22 years ago. He was ready to lead the nuclear-armed nation despite a long delay in ballot counting and allegations of vote-rigging from his main opponents.
Throughout the speech Khan who was a fierce critic of US policy in the region, called for “mutually beneficial” ties with Pakistan’s on-off ally the United States, and offered an olive branch to arch-foe India, saying the two nations should resolve their long-simmering dispute over Kashmir
His success in the election is a stunning rise for an anti-corruption crusader who has spent much of his political career on the fringes of Pakistan politics but now stands on the brink of becoming the country’s prime minister.
But the supporters of jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, accuse Khan of colluding with the still-powerful army. And it termed an assault on democracy in a country with a history of military rule.
