Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Haji Ghulam Ali has said that Article 6 can be imposed on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for creating a rift between the state and it’s institutions.

The Governor was replying to a question about Imran Khan’s recent statement that any delay in elections will be punishable by Article 6 of the constitution, which deals with treason.

Talking on a political talk show, ‘G for Ghardiah’ on News One, Ali said that the state is in a challenging situation. “All parties should unite to end these troubling times for the state. PTI has been playing the blame game since 2013. This is not the time for a blame game,” he remarked.


Asked by the host when elections will be held in KP, the governor said that he wants to hold free and fair elections. “I want that we should unite and unbiased elections should be held in the region,” said the governor.


Talking about the security situation in the region, Ali said, that if concerned institutions promise to take responsibility for security at polling stations then Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) must announce the date.
