Colonel Richard Kemp Says Jihadists, China, and Russia Are Celebrating the Afghanistan Crisis

"You know, we're seeing what we face now is a a terrorist threat coming out of Afghanistan. That is greater than the terrorist threat before 9 11 jihadists around the world have been celebrating. The events and not least the president. Not this is a jihadist, but the president of Pakistan, Imran Khan, who himself celebrated it, he should be celebrating because Pakistan significantly funded The Taliban throughout the campaign, while at the same time being paid vast amounts of money by America and Britain. Um, but they're celebrating around the world. Hamas in Gaza are celebrating What's happening here? Um, and they will be re energize. They will have to see that their recruitment has been boosted. They will be reinvigorated and they will launched attacks around the world against our countries, as they did really when they were being inspired by the Islamic state. Al Qaeda and the Islamic state are strong in Afghanistan. At the moment, Al Qaeda fought alongside the Taliban in recent battles. They will operate freely. Just doesn't matter what the Taliban say to you. They will allow the Al Qaeda in the Islamic state to operate freely there, and they can operate more freely than they could before 9 11. Because they know there's no fear of Western intervention. Now that's finished. That's history. There's not going to happen again. They know that and so they'll be even bolder than before and jihadist from around the world will flock into Afghanistan. To train prepare and launch attacks against the West. So The state of the terrorist threat is higher than it was at the height of the Islamic state's power when they controlled large parts of Syria and of Iraq. That's just one aspect of The situation. There is no one really who is celebrating this situation more than Russia and China. They're the greatest cheerleaders for what's happened.

It was really weird because When we finally let the united states government no That this was happening Others had reached out To other people and they could never get anything to happen. and I think they i think they. I just thought. I found the timing of the attack on pakistan and its prime minister from cnn. Last week interesting. I just found timing interesting especially if you knew what was happening behind the scenes. But that's just me. I wanted to make sure that everyone knew that The humanitarian effort that the prime minister pakistan has done will save men women and children the innocent victims that are suffering All of the people that are getting out With the nazarene fund on this particular operation couldn't have been done. We reached out to almost every political leader and very few have answered the call. Very few Most countries have answered the call and then when the united states said don't work with them they have said we can't. We can't work with you. We don't want to but Prime minister Imran khan Did it without hesitation and We are really really grateful. Especially since we don't have the same religion we don't agree on different things he just did. What was right when wanted people to know.

EVO 2020 was cancelled

"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?

Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?

"Pakistan was founded in nineteen forty seven. It has not proved an easy country to lead indeed indeed. It's something of a Wanda anyone tries. In those seven. Short decades of its existence Pakistan has seen two presidents or the equivalent overthrown in coups. WHO's to forced into resignation to quitting to avoid impeachment one hanged one killed in an arguably suspicious plane crash one chased into exile one one dying from illness in office of Pakistan's prime ministers four have being sacked three unloaded by their own parties. One chased into exile one on assassinated one chased into exile and then assassinated upon their return and these are an incomplete assessment of the hazards attendant upon high office in Pakistan. We've only got about five minutes and at any rate to say. Nothing of uncountable. Attempted assassinations failed. Coups d'etat and sundry abortive altuve plots any occupant of Pakistan's presidential palace or prime ministerial residence nose to sleep with one eye open and a pistol beneath a pillow pillow so it is possible that Pervez Musharraf who was president of Pakistan between two thousand and one and two thousand eight has responded philosophically to the death sentence passed upon him this week by a court in Islamabad which convicted him of high treason. Musharraf cannot claim that he didn't know what he was getting himself into to inaction at. This moment is suicide for Pakistan and I cannot allow this country to commit suicide. I had to take this action in order to preserve the democratic transition then rick I initiated Massara also enjoys the constellation that the sentence is unlikely ever to be enacted he received news of the verdict in Dubai. Are you where he has lived since two thousand sixteen having prudently contracted around then a mysterious ailment. That could not possibly have been treated. In any of Pakistan's many perfectly serviceable hospitals certain reprehensible cynics have further suggested that the United Arab Emirates lack of an extradition treaty with Pakistan may have been as much a factor in sheriff's choice of destination as the healthcare in assessing the reasons for what has befallen Musharraf. It is worth recapping how he gained power in Pakistan and how he lost it. Musharraf was a career army officer and by one thousand nine hundred nine join held the rank of general and the title of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Pakistan's senior most military role that year tensions between Musharaff Graf and then Prime Minister Sharif climaxed in a coup d'etat in which Musharaff seized power. I would like to please do not expect your level of democracy which you learned over a number of centuries all trying to learn and we are doing well the last time Musharraf held office surviving at least a two assassination attempts until two thousand eight when he resigned amid chaos and turbulence encroaching from a number of fronts. He left for London and returned to Pakistan in two thousand thirteen hoping to campaign for office again but found himself under house arrest. Prominent among a lengthy list of accusations against him was involvement in the assassination of former prime minister and former Philo exile Benazir Bhutto. who was murdered shortly after her return to Pakistan in two thousand and seven tourist allies and we are prepared to risk the liberty but we are not prepared to surrender our great nation the militants? This is not what Musharraf has been convicted of however however the high treason charge relates to his unsuccessful last-ditch attempt to prolong his presidency in two thousand and seven. He declared a state of emergency see and suspended. The constitution pulled the plugs on TV. Channels sacked the chief justice of the Supreme Court and had several opposition figures placed under house. Arrest I including current Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan Musharraf may be reflecting that some of his former foes have long memories but so Doodoo who do some of his former comrades Pakistan's military has always taken a flexible view of the convention of submission to Civilian Command and one of the more more brow arching responses to the death sentence against Musharraf has come from the Pakistani military's media department which said that the sentence had been received and with a lot of pain and anguish by the rank and file of Pakistan's armed forces. It also suggested in an unmistakable tone of airy menace that June legal. Google process seems to have been ignored and that an officer of Musharraf's statue could surely never be a traitor. Nice little independent judiciary dish area. You have here wouldn't want anything to happen to. If one sets aside any squeamishness about capital punishment with the conviction of Michelle off is arguably a step forward for Pakistan's always fraught and fragile constitutional democracy a robust assertion of the rule of law against a rogue officer who took power by force and tried to keep it by the same means however nobody in Pakistan needs reminding of the tendency of Pakistan's military to assert itself right back Woah never done in China because children deal outside Pete as we go to Air Musharaff's legal team claimed their client intends to challenge the guilty verdict and the death sentence in Pakistan's Supreme Court. It would be better for his country and himself if he did so from a distance

It was triggered by illegal eagle annexation by the indian government off the state of jammu in kashmir which is an internationally recognized dispute in fact where i sit at the united the nation's it is a dispute that is functionally on the u._n. Security council agenda because there are a series of u._n. Security council resolutions that have of course on india to allow the people of jammu in kashmir to freely determine their destiny through a so the crisis is triggered by an illegal an illegitimate action by india and let's just get the rest of the facts straight. The facts are that there is a blanket curfew in occupy genuine cushman people. There are locked up. It's called a lock down which has entered its fourth david. Actually this has been a prolonged lockdown. These people have been deprived tribe of the liberty for seventy years or more now. They're going to be deprived of their identity because the action by the indian government what does it actually do. Ooh what it does is to also allow the indian government to bring about demographic changes in dublin kushner and therefore to really really threaten the identity of the kashmiri people as far as my government is concerned and my prime minister and my country's concern. We reject this move. We heard what prime hi mr moody said just a few hours ago and it was a dishonest deceitful and disingenuous justification of their action which has no basis in law and it's certainly flouts in flagrant violation. Security council has been ambassador. Let me ask you this. Let me ask because those are very very tough words. You're using you are the u._n. Ambassador you've just reminded us all how this is enshrined in international law given the dispute you should be resolved according to the international community so what is the united nations and the security council going to do about this so they taking it up well. I have been in meetings with top officials and i have reminded them of their responsibility. Pakistan has going to go to the security council. It is going to remind mind the security council and its members indeed all of the united nations of its responsibility and what is that responsibility that responsibility is to ensure and let me say to christiane for your viewers and important resolution. It's called resolution thirty eight of the security council and the paragraph two of that resolution says a country does not have the right to materially change the situation in cushman and that's precisely what the indian government it has done so my country wants a peaceful settlement of this issue. We've always called for a negotiated settlement which is an accordance with security council resolutions russians and in accordance with the wishes of the schmead people. Let's not forget the issue is about people it's about the people who have been deprived of their right to live the way they want to be governed the way they want to end today even pro indian politicians in in kashmir have been locked up so if prime minister narendra modi's says that this is in the interests of the jungle in kashmir people the question he has to answer is why do you have to lock up the entire state of genuine kashmir why because no cash media will accept what the indian government has done a we we we. We don't accept what the indian government has done. We checked it and we'll go to the council and we'll make all these points at the council and we will insist that the council implement its own resolutions because i think the choice right now is do we want to live in a rules-based world where international law supreme or do we want to live in a world which is ruled by the law of the jungle and this is what india has done it his floated international law and it has flouted security council resolutions. You mentioned lockdown and lock up. We've heard reports that opposition politicians in in jammu kashmir have been arrested and as you say landlines are down. The internet is down. Mobile phone is down very very difficult to get an idea of exactly what's happening on the ground there but i do want to ask you because the whole world knows that this piece of disputed land has been the cause of three wars between between your nations and today your army chief the the pakistani army chief said that the country would do all that's necessary go to any extent to support cash mary's and then the foreign minister said the pakistan is not looking to respond militarily so can i hear it from you. Do you think that there's is going to be a military solution to this or do you still have diplomatic intentions. No i mean we have said very clearly that all diplomatic diplomats and political options are on the table pakistan has no interest and no desire to escalate the situation. This is an escalation that was triggered by by an illegal and illegitimate act and we would like the international community now to stand up for principle for law for justice and to address the plight eight of the kashmiri people as i keep saying christiane. This is about people in that state in an occupied state an occupation that has been brutal india has moved additional troops into occupied jammu and kashmir why obviously to suppress the voice of the kashmiri people but one day the curfew will have have to end one day these restrictions will have to go and then the indian government will hear the voice of the kashmiri people and that voice will be to get get out of kashmir to leave kashmir and to reverse this illegal annexation but that's also gives rise to all sorts of worries because if they do protests as most people believe they will and some have suggested they will if and when this curfew is is is raised that also could trigger a response so let me ask you because obviously president trump has met president prime minister modi of india several times and he also just hosted prime minister imran khan oh prime minister at the white house and when they were talking president trump said that prime minister mody had mentioned. Maybe he into mediating in this. Let me just play what president trump said. I was with prime minister modi two weeks ago and we talked about this subject and he actually flea said. Would you like to be a mediator or arbitrator. I said

All the videos were shed far and wide on social. Media has people debate it. Did these girls convert of their own free will or were they forced. There's no way of knowing the full story behind that conversions and marriages or whether they wanted it all to be filmed and publicized but activists say it's an example of something Pakistan's Owing Human Rights Commission says is a national problem it in its annual report.

She never spoke to any of the people involved in the case or to the many reporters at court to follow the story people poured from the courtroom. After the judge handed down his verdict. The sisters were eighteen or older. He ruled they would stay within new husband's uh-huh from the religious center where the girls were converted and married celebrated outside in their later cleric and former politician.

Now, obviously that what you have to say. If you're the prime minister of Pakistan, regardless of who wins an election in India, this is pretty copy paste pro forma, congratulations.

When the was an exchange of hostilities between India and Pakistan over Kashmir as the very frequently has been quotes commentator saying that the strike against Pakistan gave him the narrative needed to counter all these allegations of non-performance, etc, etc. Is that something that Pakistanis now wary of being used as a punch bag for Narendra Modi if he needs again, means of distracting people from the fact that a lot of other reforms and plans not really working terrifically?

They also very, very strongly opposed this Bill. It did manage the pasta, but it was in the face of strong opposition. So I think back the causes quite a lot of anxiety. Communist campaign is. The very least between the PTI and news Lemus party hasn't that the the regional level is not continuing in national politics. I'm not one hundred percent sore of the exact makeup of the the the coalition. He was about fourteen seats short. He'd been. They've been given the system in Pakistan where you get a lot of elected seats or something to kind of give on this and quotas nuts, how they ensure representation of women and and religious minorities. Campaign and anxiety about Imran Khan's notes toward these extremely conservative religious elements. And I think there's a lot of worry about how that to play out at a government level. So it's not. It wasn't just the cases of kind of working with these policies and keeping the background very much who's playing to that base throughout his time in provincial government. And also throughout the election campaign. He taught not about the blasphemy. No, very students. Knee in defendants is the blasphemy law, which of course controversial in the death sentence left me. He also kind of adults of nation who rarely hardly persecuted minority ama- dissects, who are kind of very small sector slum who the majority of since considered to be heretics, and they face a huge revolu state persecution and. That was something that Enron on really made up during his campaign, which is, I think, quite worrying given the radio kind of profoundly profoundly persecuted group. View his his journey, Samaria.

And I guess in the UK's mall known for his celebrity marriages these days than his his political stances, but he has developed a party that's capable of winning an election entering government and becoming the head of that government. How do you view how Imran Khan himself has changed developed? Maybe even grown over these twenty two years. Question. I think the outset he was very much seen as this glamorous international sporting star. He was very good looking. He was a regular on the international nightclub circuit.

And I think actually took quite a while about the way in in in national press. I remember during the last election I lived in Buxton Betty and the contrast between the quite gushing stuff you see in the international media around cricketing see star having his political moment and in Pakistan where of course, there's a lot of popularity on one level, but on the other kind of common nickname with harm because. Because causing these religious. And I think that really he has had a shift in his relationship to religion. You see that almost in in, you referred to the interest in his personal life in. And that's why then his his Mesa swipe he married quite soon because election is a is a religious adviser and she was full face cell. He made a huge Dale giving interviews talking about how he'd never seen hef as before her marriage and how this would have been on thinkable some years ago. And so on. So he really emphasizes his Muslim identity emphasize Sanni than the and he's really quite a kind of nativist populace. I think in the vein is of many leaders. We've seen elected in different parts of the world at big promises. I'm going to end corruption in ninety days. I'm going to create ten million jobs in five years, you know, kind of not quite in so many words, but it kind of make great together. I think we'll come back to you and ninety days some Harrow.

"Petition. Yeah, plug is stuck. I can sign you have gun is mine spray Shen is this that Pakistan will be the kind of welfare state where we take care of our poor people. What unfortunately, our state is the opposite of that with inhumane system where might is right, that's Imran Khan, the charismatic cricket star who was elected last week to become Pakistan's. Next prime minister conned his vow to fight corruption at the highest levels and to stand up for the poor. And he said he won't be living in the prime minister's mansion, for example. But he's also been a fierce critic of the American war on terror and its impact on Pakistan in recent days con has come under heightened scrutiny. And now he is being criticized for alleged ties to the military, which are claimed that he rejects Osama bin davita is a Pakistani journalist who's been covering the elections, and he joins us from his Lama bud run cons being in objects for the last twenty two years. He started off by starting up. Phil. Tropic projects as as university. He started off right after he won the World Cup. So he has been the charismatically who could talk to Buxton he's just inside, but outside Kasane and have an audience. And now his twenty two us struggle has culminated in him. Most probably getting the prime minister's slot there in good numbers and they will not need any major collision. So it is likely that he's weak to win as a person. Imran Khan struggled a number of challenges throughout his life because his image was of a fist and educated like stunning, who's lived most of his life of rod. It was considered somebody who was a very popular among women as men, and that is an image that he had to overcome. He got mad at he had children than he got divorced, and he got battered again in he's in his third marriage because it is a conservative Muslim society. So his cut wife is. Spiritual guide who has notched following among others to Enron cons. Like you said, a cosmetic lead to somebody who can full crowds, and especially now that he is eyeing the top job of the country is acceptable to all sorts of the political spectrum. Now, he's also been very vocal about fighting corruption, but his issue has been that it's not necessarily extremism its governance. That's the problem. What is his take on? What is he vowed to do to change that? What he's got an ambitious hundred day plan, which involves about ten million jobs and hundreds of thousands of homes. I call it emissions because that is the assessment because he might be able to start the legwork in that direction. But I don't think that he'd be able to achieve all over that he's promised in the first hundred days. It is a massive reform agenda. Ron cons built this election campaign on fighting corruption. He's said that all of. The traditional parties, and especially the leadership of those potties is corrupt. These people being been involved in kickbacks and looting the country and depriving it's people don't. They had rights and he says, when he comes to power, he is going to make sure that there's an egalitarian system which does not differentiate within the Richard, the pool, and there are enough opportunities for the fool to rise up. That is something that he's taken on board in his campaign as well as the people that he surrounded himself. It's or be that has been a knot of criticism about the kind of people that run concentrated himself. People who are so-called inevitable's who've won elections of other parties. People who helped him come to power and been a majority of seats. So it is going to be an interesting few months in Pakistan, but Imran Khan, the politician when have to make sure that he delivers as imminent Huntley. They were also concerns from rival parties. That said that the ballots had workout it in secret and potential for election. Fraud is any of that true, but these are so so far claims by political parties. I was covering the election. This is an, I've been governing elections for nearly two decades. Now, this is by far one of the most professionally elections, where the accusations of rigging and won't fraud during the election process did not rise up..

"Despite how the Gatien's of vote-rigging claims at the military has done all it can to interfere with the election. Pakistan's vote on Wednesday has left Imran Khan as the country's likely next prime minister. It's being described as perhaps just the second democratic transfer of power in the country's history. So what can we expect from Pakistan's new leader? Let's talk to ISIS that he goes military scientist offer and research associated. So us here in London. Thank you for coming in this evening. Let's start with the idea which has been discussed a lot in the run-up to the election that the military was doing, everything could to help in round com win. Is that fair? Indeed, that is a fair analysis, but let me explain it was what we call pre poll rigging, which is basically effecting having influence on -pinion of general voters on the public and making them think believe in the narrative that impromptu walls, the best man was the best choice. But on the election day, despite what has been said, and I know human rights commission of FOX on has some reservations about how the Bose conducted. I would say that generally it was an okay exercise. In fact, European Union. The mission that when they're said there was, you know, it was satisfactory. E mission had also said that the two thousand thirteen elections were satisfactory. So to that extent, yes, people have. I mean, let's face the reality of the people we've been. I might not like him, but they are people impacts on who have voted for Iran Khan. You know, that's fact, he obviously has been a very prominent figure for for a while. Nine Pakistani politics this, his most successful performance. You can't help thinking in that situation that he may feel that he owes the military detto gratitude which may be called in at some point. I would say not just a military, but also people electable 's I'm electable 's our people politicians who have no single ideology who keeps shifting their party's positions based on the desire for power or remain in both. Now, these people, of course, back -rupt, many of them have allegations on them. I mean, for example, the day, yes, today he made his speech and one of the person standing next to him was his spotty member. Johnny Doreen now jonky Doreen has been disqualified from the parliament from contesting elections, the rest of his life just like Nevada, Sharieff on corruption charges on on judges of defrauding and not providing information about as assets. Now, in that case, they are these people associated with him. So on one hand, you have these. Kind of people who are rich, who provide Imron Khan with everything from his planes to because an and if you read Ron cons, a former vice book realm Hans later spoke, what she says is that basically everybody around him pays for his lifestyle. So naturally, he's indebted to many people and one BIC big block is on itself. So the question does arise. How much is he going to go forward? How much is he going to be able to control them? I mean, either it's going to result in a lot of friction between him and the army, or he'll take it or lying down. And then you know, this is somebody who has spoken again and again, again about wanting to tackle endemic corruption in Pakistani society and has now been elected, and so we'll be expected to actually do some. Well, I would say it's not to be an ideal situation and what is he was definitely not going to touch the military Vickers the military and the judiciary's over said the are above accountability, the national accountability bureau, the country's only primary anti corruption organization does not look look into financial accountability of judiciary and and the military. So their argument is we're already accountable. You're already cleaner than anybody else in the country. So no need to look look at us and the very Thomas. So I don't think that. And so what's going to happen is that probably there will be stories coming in about this corruption that corruption which is going to, and I would say, do not forget that it's not a very, you know, his not swept elections, his a right now, the..

"Has to be Listrik expectations of what he wants to do and what he will be able to do. So for example, one of the crucial things that Augustan has suffered from the civil military imbalance. As you say, it's either direct military rule, or there are times of military goes in the background, but controls crucial areas of odyssey, usually the civilian facade. I mean, my GIO listeners Augustan, it's seventy one years old and not a single prime minister has been allowed to complete the tenure. So the kicked out on charges of corruption or bad governance or what not. And the same thing happened with the Las Schutte. So Imran Khan is expected to be more compliant prime minister because he knows very well that he needed the support of state institutions who come to try not to take them on on foreign policy matters.

How soon do you think that conflict will come Optimus? -tic view. Is that the it'll take up love yours.

"Imran Khan says that Pakistan's voters have given him a mandate, but the former cricket captains path to the prime ministership still isn't clear as we go to air. They're still counting the votes in yesterday's national election. And while Mr. Khan's party appears to have won the most seats there. Well, short of the outright majority, then there are the accusations of vote rigging and manipulation by the army. Shove Jilani is a freelance journalist reached him in Karachi Mr. Delaney. What is the atmosphere in Pakistan tonight as people wait to find out what this election is going to mean? What is no particular that Brown con and his spotty will have the biggest majority, the parliament it will not be enough for them to form a government on their own. In all likelihood, they will seek coalition partners, but I think it's now pretty clear that he will be the next prime minister and to our people celebrating. Is there anxiety? How is it there. The nation is divided. As you can imagine, Imram Khan has folded is the country. His supporters, obviously Juban, especially young people. Women are middle class people who normally do not take part in politics of Iran Han managed to put it decides them, inspire them over the years, going from Anita. Nobody to seed Asli to now becoming the prime minister, but equally in large parts of the country people are wanted because detained that he's inexperience, it believed that he has been brought to follow by the military and that cannot be good. They don't believe that he will fight for all of entries from the and constitution and Foxton. So there are fears that he might end up strenghtening the military. I am interested in what you're saying about where he's come from, because I covered a previous Pakistani election some years ago, and he I had to interview. Him when he was in hiding because Pervez Musharraf was in charge and wanted him arrested. He's come from that to this. How did that happen? That's true. I mean, round con will see as the real Joyce for the silent majority people who have fed up the traditional politics. Same, not on Wesley. Remember he was a cricket captain in the nineteen ninety s and then he set up a against hospital in his mother's name. So he had you jetty woke to his credit international sports star to his credit and many dabbled in politics. People laughed send you all politics as an dining, different ballgame. He's not gonna make it. And for many struggle in thirteen and actions, he did contest. He got a number of boards in the northwestern province, cli- formed a gunman dead, but he did not get enough Balkan aboard, win seats in the parliament. And in the last five years, we saw him John psalm in do one of those politicians who will got deals will make compromises who would go to any lengths go to cover this. Ya. He must help an edgy by. The army. So a lot of people who are Novosti ditched him. Now us reaping. Yes, and many of his argumentation dish. Nobody that's been Imron Han became much more potent force. What evidence is there that Mr. Khan was supported by the military CDs of events over the last one year, many of these people who left their parent party didn't offer strong convincing case vied. They were bitching a gunman. They've been bought of all VANOVER four and a half years. And these people have a reputation of switching loyalties when they feel somebody else will be brought in. So there's plenty of circumstantial evidence I can tell you I was covering this campaign. I've into Balochistan province near the reunion gone Boorda. I traveled job and it was. It was really stunning of stoking do candidates and politicians who are not supporting him. Non con. There was embedded -ly mentioned of the local ISI officialize. I being the Pakistani. Agency. So it seems to me that the diligence agencies have played some role somewhere in elections, and it reinforced the perception that way was being faithful. Ron Han become too now, we know the military has has long, had a role in ruling Pakistan, either ruling itself for having influence on the politics. If Imran Khan needed the military support to win.

"This is what is kept nausea, Reeves party, in particular, in power, input job. It's the power of patronage. It's clans, clientele. Basically, they've got enough money. They can keep these networks beholden to that party. And Imran Khan is found it very difficult to penetrate three that this time, one of the reasons he's been able to a, he's been more willing to do these localize is and people have been more willing to do them with him as well as he's looked more likely to win be. He seems to have had these his opponents claim. He's had the backing the army and see his anti corruption narrative is cutting through a lot more not least because no Sharieff the former prime minister is in jail on corruption charges that Imran come in. Brought to the supreme cooled and victim and give us a sense of what this election means for the wide region and the wider world. I suppose there was outside Asia, lots more concentration on Pakistan on its gyp little significance at the height of the Afghan war. One. It really played critical role in in the often of of nine eleven. Now, I think that you know in the think tanks in the US they probably think about it a a little less. But Pakistan does seem to be if you like in play between the United States and China doesn't it? It's place kind of bigamous role. That's right. I mean, I think there's a danger for western policymakers if they think that because they recognize him Rincon is a cricketer former playboy. That means it's going to be sympathetic to western values. He's actually shown exactly the opposite. I'm not lifestyle, which does remain fairly western, I think in reality, but through his policies, he's probably gonna have Islamist allies. He's been very critical of the US war on the ways being conducted in Afghanistan. He he's kind of come down and I think in favor of the blasphemy law in in Pakistan, which is which is controversial. But I think for western Democrats, if you like, I think he's gonna come up against very similar issues in foreign policy that his predecessors have come up against. He shows no sign of wanting to end this rather ludicrous enmity with neighboring India, which Nova Sharieff actually to his credit did try to soften a little bit the border between India and Pakistan in Punjab news. I'm trying to the horse should really be the world's busiest border, but it's actually one of the qualities if you go across, there's almost no traffic going across, and then he's also going to have to deal with the issue of China. You know, China is investing tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure projects in Pakistan and any government including Imran. Khan's is going to have to deal with that and they're sort of contrivances in Pakistan about that in terms of whether the debts can be repaid some of these politicians on those kind of issues. And and as you say, there is a kind of geopolitical power play between the United States and China and India is there on the sidelines, let's assume for the moment that he does take power reasonably smoothly. Do you have any sense yet of water name run? Uncon- government's going to be like. Like I mean, does he have any administrative experienced as he have experienced people around him and doing the, he'll make a false start? Or do you think it's like to be a while as he feels his way? Yeah, took a question. His posse the PTI has been in power in the states of Khyber Peckham Kwa for the last few years, how well they've done. There is fiercely disputed, but it is not paxton's biggest or most popular state, so that and his record of administration is is pretty thin. I spoke to him last week and Tim, a couple of detail policy questions, some of which he was best role in the detail than others. So I did osc him. For example, victim mentioned the impending economic crisis. I asked him whether he was willing to go to the f. or whether he wanted to go to China to get more loans from Beijing to do with that. And he simply said that the parties undertake your review and he wasn't able to or any questions on it. So I think he's gonna have a lot of getting up to speed to do very quickly. And you ask whether he'll make a fuss. Awesome. He'll quite simply have to because this financial crisis, I think he's gonna hit him within months if not weeks of taking charge..

"Getting Rachman today. We're looking at Pakistan, whether I just held elections and it seems as if Imran Khan, the former cricketer and political outsider is the victim. So what happens now, joining me on the line is our correspondent, Karen, Stacy who covered the elections and also on the line is our Asia News editor victim mullet Karen, I we're talking about twenty four hours after the polls closed has Imran's party clearly one. Yeah, we've now got enough ice to be pretty sure that Iran Connie is going to be the next prime minister of Pakistan. We've had final declarations from around that he constituencies, but we've had about fifty percents of the vote from the rest and what is becoming players that has one. He's one of the most people thought he's one probably over one hundred seats maybe over one hundred ten which puts him within touching distance for majority as the day goes on might be that results come even more in his. Favor, and he gets that majority which would be far better than anyone was expecting an even if he falls just short. It shouldn't be too difficult for him to do a couple of alliances with smaller parties and get himself installed as prime minister in the coming days. How big a political changes this podcastone you've covered many Pakistan e elections over the enormous dominated by two parties associated with the family and no us Reese family. And here we have a new. He's broken the mold and not sense in and that he was very sort of distant third, and now he's come can call you won this election. I think the question really is whether he's getting to be a mold breaker or a big change in terms of what he actually does when he's in power. And I think there it's a little bit more dubious. You know, he's a Pashtoon, but he's brought up in the hor- privileged family and he's gonna face exactly the same problems that other governments civilian governments have faced in the past very heavy corruption. Of course, he's talked about being anti corruption campaigner, and that's something that may set him apart from his predecessors, but his other economic policies necessarily that different from what other people said they're gonna do get to reform the some of the state-owned enterprises. He's gonna widen the tax, these things urgently needed. He's going to develop tourism, which is setting a very tough loss in a place like Pakistan. But I do think he's going to come up against executive the same problems that his predecessors have come up against. And that is essentially the all me whether or not the army pushed him into. Pau or not. And that's what he's opponent. Suspect. They clearly remain incredibly influential. They see the large amount of the of the budget of the state for themselves, and it just narrows the space in which civilian politicians like him can actually operate in. And I think that is going to be a challenge and we're really looking at quite a severe economic crisis. I mean, there's a very severe foreign exchange crisis that he the next government is going to have to do with really in a matter of weeks. Before we go into some of those crunchy issues that victor's raised about the economy about the army, just give us a sense of Imran's personal journey because I think that the yours, many people in Britain because I guess that heard of him as a famous cricketer assume that he would sweep to power, but actually it's taken literally decades, hasn't it since he returned as a kind of semi playboy celebrity, it has. So he says up his party's, the PTI, which means movement for Justice. He set up in nineteen Ninety-six promising to sweep aside pucks, don's endemic corruption, and it's taken him until now to get anywhere close to power. It looked like he was going to break through in twenty thirteen when he toured the country just before that election and was gathering crowds of up to one hundred thousand people. I think what became clear after that election when he came at distant third, is that a lot of those crowds that just to see the man who led the puck istani cricket team to the well Cup in nineteen Ninety-two and be what has been his consistent problem input. Takes is the puck Astaldi politics is dominated by so-called barrage links. These kind of clan. Family ties, which mean that happens is that for local politicians will do deals with heads of plans to make sure that everybody within that network invites the same way..
