Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party, which says it never talks to its opponents, is continuing talks with Ishaq Dar, the federal government’s finance minister, who has come under serious allegations that he in the past.

Several leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf have confirmed their talks with the federal government. Finance Minister Ishaq Dar recently held several meetings with President Dr. Arif Alvi, who was elected by the votes of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf. After these meetings, pleasant expressions were expressed from both sides. Such a favorable change will come in the environment that Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has also offered to arrange a meeting between Shehbaz Sharif and Imran Khan if both sides agree.

Why was Imran Khan forced to negotiate with the government?

In response to this question, many observers believe that Imran Khan has no choice but to talk. Prominent Pakistani analyst Raza Rumi told DW that Imran Khan can make arbitrary changes in the establishment under public pressure and cannot change the election date. In Punjab, Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, whom he supported, was also not under his control and his announcement to quit the assemblies faced reservations from his own party. According to Raza Rumi, he had few options in these situations. “Imran Khan played his cards fast, the long march should be the last resort, but he started his active protest with the long march.” Now, if they do not go to the negotiations, they will be left in the consultation for the next election.

Senior journalist Sajjad Mir told Deutsche Welle that Imran Khan is surrounded by scandals. The audio leak of Zulfi Bukhari and Imran’s wife Bushra Bibi, which came to light on Thursday, has badly tarnished Imran Khan’s image. Now these matters will go to the courts and the cases against Imran Khan will speed up. In these circumstances, Imran Khan’s ‘I don’t believe’ policy will only add to his woes.

Did Imran Khan agree to talk to the government on someone’s suggestion?

In response to this question, Sajjad Mir said that Imran Khan was clearly told by the establishment that they cannot help him with the election date or help him in other political matters. Can someone help him? They have to solve their own political issues and the army has nothing to do with politics. ‘Now if you take that as a hint, it might be the hint.’ Some observers are of the opinion that Imran Khan did not come to the negotiation table at the behest of anyone, but he was forced into these negotiations because he could not get a hint from anyone.

Imran Khan’s arrival in the talks is welcome

Prominent journalist and columnist Syed Irshad Ahmad Arif told DW that in the past, it was undemocratic behavior of Imran Khan to refuse negotiations by calling political opponents in parliament thieves and robbers. Now, if they are willing to negotiate with anyone’s demand, it should be accepted because it is a good sign for the democratic system. According to Irshad Ahmad Arif, if the political forces themselves will not negotiate, then a third force will come to negotiate and in such a case they will also keep their interests in mind. Therefore, it will not have a good effect on democracy. Bhutto kept prolonging the negotiations and left the country in the middle of the negotiations and we saw the result in the form of Zia-ul-Haq.

Will the negotiations between the government and PTI be fruitful?

Raza Rumi said that it will not be easy for these negotiations to be fruitful because there are many difficulties. For the success of these negotiations, both sides must abandon their stubbornness and retreat from their respective positions. ‘The dire economic situation of the country also requires that the political people find a middle way to get out of this crisis.’

In response to a question whether the Pakistani establishment also wants to end the political crisis, Raza Rumi said that the establishment has declared itself to stay away from politics. Now after recent revelations, it has come to light that Chaudhry Parvez is the nominee of the Elah establishment and there is no denying it yet. “Now if Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi is trying to advance the system by avoiding disrupting gatherings, you can make any sense of it.”

In his opinion, the establishment and the judiciary want to resolve political issues in parliament and stability in the country.

Senior analyst Sajjad Mir said that through these talks, Imran Khan may be ‘motivated’ to save the assemblies from dissolution so that the democratic system can continue. According to him, the real difficulty is that even if matters have been settled with Imran Khan regarding the next elections in these negotiations, who can guarantee that he will stand by his word?

Who benefits from the negotiations between the government and PTI?

Sajjad Mir said that negotiations in democratic politics should not be seen in terms of winning or losing. Sometimes political parties have to retreat from their fixed positions to achieve real goals.

According to Syed Irshad Arif, the government will benefit more from this discussion. The absence of negotiations will increase uncertainty, instability and economic recovery. What performance can the government show in such situations? If the environment is improved through negotiations, the government will get most of its fruits. “One should not be alarmed by the bold statements of political leaders, they are only meant to influence voters and increase their bargaining power. Ultimately, decisions are made based on ‘get a thing and give something’.”
