EX PM Imran Khan Featured on Time Magazine’s Cover


America’s most influential magazine, Time magazine, published the photo of Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on its cover and called him the most popular politician of Pakistan.

Imran Khan was removed from office and was the target of an assassination attempt, but he is still the most well-liked politician in Pakistan. Khan was deposed in a no-confidence vote in the parliament exactly one year prior.

Since then, the PTI leader has been calling for immediate elections as a result of the pressure he puts on the current administration through periodic rallies across the nation attended by thousands of his supporters.

In a cover story for TIME MAGZINE Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has called for a “new social contract” to empower political institutions, lamenting that he was “helpless” while in government because the Army chief did not “think corruption was that big a deal.” 

Titled “Imran Khan on his Plan to Return to Power,” the wide-ranging article outlines the year the ousted prime minister has spent out of power, highlighting the U.S.’s disenchantment with his rhetoric and his vague plans for Pakistan’s economic revival if he is re-elected.

“Our economy has gone into a tailspin,” Khan tells author Charlie Campbell, claiming the country has the “worst economic indicators in our history.”

Yet, as the story points out, this is unlikely to win over the West, which has been “put off” by Khan’s anti-American vitriol.
