Federal Minister for Information, Senator Pervaiz Rashid Sunday said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan should put the vote fraud allegations on the table of talks, news reported.

“The charges Imran Khan has been levelling against us in his speeches since we came into power have not been tabled before the government’s dialogue committee”, the minister said in a statement issued.

The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) minister said that the demands tabled during the talks pertained to the procedural work of the Election Commission of Pakistan, adding the government was not authorized to interfere in the affairs of Election Tribunals.

“If Khan is not happy with the Election Tribunals work-pace then he should put forth his suggestions on how to improve it in the Parliament”, Rashid said.

Citing the record, he said that the majority of cases got held up owing to non-cooperation by the candidates of Khan’s party.

The PTI, party of cricketing legend Imran Khan — who has been leading the protests along with populist cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri — claims that the 2013 general election which swept Sharif to power was heavily rigged.

Thousands of their followers have set up camp in Islamabad’s sensitive “Red Zone” government district since August 15.

But their calls to overthrow the government have failed to galvanise mass support in the country of 180 million.

The military has issued a series of public advisories to the government in recent days on how the crisis should be tackled, leading to criticism that it is interfering.

Analysts and government figures have said the army may be using the crisis to its advantage to try to assert its dominance over the Sharif government.
