“Democracy is at an all-time low. The only hope we have is the judiciary,” said PTI chief Imran Khan while speaking with Sky News on Sunday.
The former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, said that the coalition government was “petrified of elections” and feared being “wiped out” by his party at the polls.
“So they have decided that the only way they will allow elections is if I am inside jail or killed. There have been two attempts on me,” he said, adding that his house was also raided while he was away.
The former prime minister also condemned “all violence” when asked about alleged violence by protesters following his arrested from the premises of Islamabad High Court (IHC) on May 9.
Addressing the party workers and supporters on Friday, the former prime minister has urged the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan to launch an investigation into May 9 violence, that emerged following his arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust case.

TheImran Khan noted that the police stopped him from leaving the Islamabad High Court (IHC) premises despite the court granting bail in multiple cases. “The police wanted to arrest me under MPO [Maintenance of Public Order] outside the courtroom,” he added.
