It’s monarchy in Pakistan, not democracy, says Imran


The leadership of Pakistan’s political parties is being passed on like sceptres from father to son like in a monarchy, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Saturday.
Khan said both the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had passed on the leadership of their parties from one family member to another, Geo News reported.
At a political rally in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the former cricketer was referring to the PPP’s first chairman Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who was succeeded by his wife Nusrat Bhutto and later by his daughter Benazir Bhutto.
After the assassination of Benazir in December 2007, the party was led by her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, who passed on the mantle to their 23-year-old son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
Similarly, the PML-N is led by former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, whose brother Shahbaz Sharif is a key party member and the chief minister of Punjab. Shahbaz Sharif’s son Hamza Shahbaz is also an important party leader as well as an MP and now Nawaz’s daughter Maryam Nawaz was also being launched in politics.
Khan said this was not democracy, as “the political parties are being run like dynasties”.


  1. hahhaha Kamal sb its not vs….its just difference of point of view……waisy to sara media raula pata hy k PTI supporter badtameez hain laykn lag rahy hy k IK k muklif b kuch khas tameez k alam nai uthy hoy…..

    • So, basically you are disqualifying Imran Khan on the basis of his age. It is imran Khan's "views" on how to attain a progressive Pakistan that young people like. Your lack of intellect makes it unable for you to think and have views therefore, you and (and people like you) focus on meaningless things like his age and hairstyle etc. So, stop saying silly things and making a fool of yourself!! I will name this Cheema, the Silly Cheema!

  2. pmln and ppp suffered a lot on this pith. Benazir father Zulfiqar Ali Bhutfo was hanged his daughter murdered. Nawaz Sharif a primeminister of 2/3 majority hardly passed 2 years in office and the man who built motorway and declared pakistan an atomic power was arrested banded his hand with seat of a plan ousted sentenced life time prison and then sent to in exile for 10 years. Imran did not experienced such things.

  3. welsaid khan but beware ov people coming around happened to jinnah,bhutto n now ur turn al ov them done by their own but after winning r near to win,hired these jackpots.u all know what happened next…….

  4. When asked by Jeremy Paxman about why the leadership of the major political party was passed on like family heirloom and the idiot Bilwalal said thats the way we do it. What contempt for the idiot members and supporters of the PPP. Don`t you understand you are just the servants in a family business.

  5. Imran Khan has been Chairman of his party for too long. He should give chance to somebody else also.

    • As soon as Imran is about to kick out the crooks you want him to step down. While the families that have destroyed Pakistan, the Sharifs and the Bhttos can hand the nation down like an hierloom. The servants will always crawl out of the woodwork to defend the masters!

    • hehe what a joke! … His party is in building phase and you are saying he should give chairmanshipt to someone else …

    • Have a heart. If I say you have lived too long, now you should die and give place to other human beings on earth, would you like it.

  6. please check histrory of people joining you as well.Shah Mehmood , His father & grand father ..?Is this not dynasty?

  7. Imran is very lcal body elections since so called democracy came.both ppp and nawaz league both failed to go for local body elections.what a shame democracy?isnot it?all mnas are mahrarajas,they take develomental funds,rather these funds should be used through local governments to solve peoples problems.mnaz should not be given single penny excep for their salaries….ppp and nwaz league are going through the phase of transfering thier parties to their next generation….so very true is mr imran…dont you see this happening in front of your eyes……… your eyes o people of pakistan….

  8. we should all know that PPP and especially PML N has started to pay people to come online and start saying anti-Imran and anti-PTI things. Shahbaz Sharif apparently has started to distribute laptops in Lahore so that 'youth' can say they are with PML-N. These 'supporters' have all been paid off. It is important, however, as PTI supporters to always tell the truth about them on all forums.


  9. Imran sent his sons abroad so he can easily criticize others. He has no connections with this country. He is a man of west,,,or jews.

  10. Another dictator coming.HIs face shows haTE FOR nAWAZ sharif only.
    He does NOT WANT ZARDARI HIS PEOPLE TO CRTICIse as much he only DOES TO SHARIF,.THAT IS HIS target. not poor ruined by this government and mqnm,anp,mlcc,mma
