KARACHI: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan on Tuesday said that his party will oppose any legislation that aims at delaying the general elections.

Imran took to Twitter to express his opinion, which comes a day after he alleged that the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s (PML-N) president and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif seemed to be desperate for another National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO)-like deal.

“He is desperate for NRO to avoid conviction on money laundering and save his Rs300 billion stashed abroad from being frozen,” Imran had tweeted.

A high-level PML-N huddle in London, on Monday, had decided that Nawaz would continue as the head of the PML-N but also tone down his tirade against state institutions on the basis of his “unfair trial”.

The former prime minister had said that he will return to Pakistan to attend the corruption trial against him on Friday.

Last week, the accountability court hearing corruption references against the Sharif family issued bailable warrants for the former premier in the three references against him as he has lately been a no-show in the proceedings.

The references against the Sharif family pertain to the Azizia Steel Mills and Hill Metals Establishment, their London properties and over dozen offshore companies owned by the family.

The hearing was then adjourned until November 3, with the last chance for the former premier to ensure his presence in court.
