KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday said the country’s expectations associated with his party will serve as its greatest opposition.
In a message to party leaders on social media, Chaudhry said the Cabinet was not a bed of roses. “The nation expects huge decisions from PTI…the Cabinet will be a bed of thorns because people want change, which is both, quick and effective,” he wrote on Twitter.
Referring to the high expectations of PTI supporters, who helped the Imran Khan-led party to sweep the General Election 2018, the party spokesperson admitted it will not be an easy task to live up to the promises.
In what some political commentators consider a dramatic overturn in the local political scenario, PTI won 116 seats in the National Assembly in the recently held polls.
In the 2013-polls, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had won 166 seats. However, it only managed to win from 64 constituencies of the Lower House of the Parliament this time around.
Citizens have seemingly voted for the change that PTI has long aimed to bring in Naya Pakistan — a promise by the party that corruption and poverty will come to an end in ‘new Pakistan.’
