Imran Khan Writes Letter to IMF, Urging Election Audit Before Giving New Loan

Islamabad: Imran Khan, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), revealed on Friday that he has penned a letter to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), urging the global financial institution to conduct an audit of the election results before considering any new loan for Pakistan.

During a hearing of the £190 million reference at Adiala Jail, Khan informed the media about the letter, emphasizing the importance of ensuring transparency in the electoral process before securing additional loans for the country.

Speaking to the media in the courtroom, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan, said that he has written a letter to the IMF, and it will be sent today. “In such circumstances, if the country gets a loan, who will pay it back?”, questioned Imran Khan, highlighting concerns about the repercussions of obtaining loans amidst electoral uncertainties.

Expressing apprehension about the impact of further borrowing on poverty levels, Imran Khan cautioned against increasing the country’s debt burden without adequate investment and financial stability. He said that poverty will further increase due to this loan, and unless investment comes in, the debt will continue to rise.

The founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf emphasized that political stability should be established in the country first.

PTI founder further stated that institutions were destroyed for the selection of Nawaz Sharif. Courts, NAB, everything was destroyed. He alleged that he was falsely implicated for Nawaz Sharif’s sake,  and then rigging was done in the elections, and then the revelations of Commissioner Rawalpindi came out in this regard but the commissioner was abducted and tortured, taken into Vigo, and now his software has also been updated.

It is worth noting that this development of writing a letter to the IMF follows an announcement was made by PTI senator Ali Zafar yesterday, disclosing Khan’s decision to write to the IMF, urging for an audit of the February 8 election before proceeding with discussions on a new loan program.

Despite Khan’s efforts, it remains uncertain whether his letter will yield the desired outcome, as the IMF has expressed willingness to collaborate with the new Pakistani government while disregarding his demand for an election audit.

In response to Khan’s initiative, former finance minister Ishaq Dar, a senior leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), criticized the move, stating that the letter holds no significance if it undermines the national interest.
