Islamabad, Aug 30 : Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan Saturday reiterated his demand that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif step down until the judicial commission completes its probe into the alleged rigging during the 2013 general elections.
"The prime minister should sit out for one month until the rigging probe is complete. Resign till the investigation and if cleared return," Geo News quoted Imran Khan as saying.
The cricketer-turned-politician also said that Sharif lied on the floor of the National Assembly about who had asked the army to mediate.
He said a monarchical system had been established in Pakistani politics. "This is a kleptocracy and not a democracy."
Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek leader Tahir-ul Qadri Aug 15 began their protests for the resignation of Prime Minister Sharif as they accuse him of rigging the 2013 general election.
