The PTI chief said that he does not doubt credibility of whoever would be appointed the army chief. He added that he is rather suspicious of intentions of those who would appoint the army chief.

Yesterday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan reiterated that no matter who comes into power, the economy can’t be improved as long as there is political instability in the country.

Addressing a seminar, Imran said that investors don’t invest amid political instability. Imran underlined that political stability is only possible with transparent elections.

“Trust of investors could only be restored through election,” Imran further said.

The PTI chief spoke about the country’s state of economy saying it would have been difficult if it wasn’t for the help Pakistan received from friendly nations.

“If we hadn’t received help from Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and China, we wouldn’t have had resources for payments,” he said.
