Elections 2013Imran Khan offers thanks to youths for unprecedented support

LAHORE: Chief of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Imran Khan on Sunday thanked the youths of Pakistan for their overwhelming response to the party in general elections of Pakistan.

“I’m thankful to the people of Pakistan, especially the youngsters who queued up for hours to cast their votes for a new Pakistan,” the bedridden Khan spoke from Shaukat Khanam Memorial Hospital Lahore.


He has been hospitalized after sustaining head and back injuries due to falling from a lifter at a PTI gathering in Lahore last week.

Khan’s PTI has emerged as the second biggest party in Pakistan followed by the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) and others.

Many of the urban youths were voting for the first time in May 11 elections that saw a robust turnout of 60 percent.

Imran Khan won three of four National Assembly seats. He secured National Assembly seats in Peshawar, Rawalpindi and Mianwali but defeated in PML-N stronghold Lahore.
