 Will Imran Khan participate in the election?

His party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf won the 2018 election and he was elected as the Prime Minister of the country. However, his government was terminated by a no-confidence motion in April last year.

Which is three major political parties that are candidates for the next government?

The general elections will be contested between PTI, Muslim League-N and Pakistan Peoples Party. After Imran Khan went to jail, Tehreek-e-Insaf will try to win the next election by winning the sympathies of the people.

According to Reuters, the PTI could return to power only if relations with its establishment are normalized, but the chances of this happening are very slim.

PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif wants to return to Pakistan, but he has been convicted in a corruption case and in these circumstances Shahbaz Sharif is seen as the prime ministerial candidate in the next government as well.

Economic stability is the biggest challenge for Pakistan, a country that narrowly avoided default after the IMF deal. Historical inflation and interest rate hikes have already occurred prior to economic reforms.

Political uncertainty after Imran Khan's jailing is also a major challenge. Although the May 9 situation did not arise after his arrest this time, if he continues to remain in jail, the credibility of the election will be questioned.

If the election is delayed for more than 90 days, the Supreme Court can also raise constitutional and legal questions while interpreting the constitution.
