Shehbaz Sharif, the President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and a prominent contender for the position of the next prime minister in Pakistan, has consistently emphasized the necessity for another IMF program to address the ongoing economic crisis in the country.

In the preceding week, Imran Khan made the decision to write a letter to the IMF, focusing on alleged irregularities in the general elections held on February 8. This information was disclosed by Barrister Ali Zafar, a leader of the PTI. Ali Zafar asserted that any organization would be reluctant to provide a loan to a country where elections are perceived as rigged. In the forthcoming letter, the PTI is expected to call for an independent audit team to investigate the claims of fraud in the electoral process.
