Pakistan Observer - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF REPORTER

ISLAMABAD—In­for­ma­tion Min­is­ter Per­vaiz Rashid has said that the en­tire coun­try is proud of Sadiq Khan’s vic­tory, son a Pak­istani im­mi­grant in Lon­don against Con­ser­va­tive Party’s Zac Gold­smith in may­oral elec­tion.

The min­is­ter con­grat­u­lated Labour Party’s Sadiq Khan, first Mus­lim mayor of Lon­don. He said that Sadiq Khan’s win has re­futed claims of PTI chief about his pop­u­lar­ity out­side Pak­istan.

Gold­smith is brother to PTI chief’s ex-wife Jemima Gold­smith. Rashid said that Khan was sup­port­ing an elec­tion cam­paign against a Pak­istan­born can­di­date. Lon­don­ers have re­jected Khan’s ‘pol­i­tics of lies’, he added.

Per­vaiz Rashid said that elec­tion of a Pak­istan-born can­di­date as Lon­don’s mayor is a joy­ous oc­ca­sion for all Pak­ista­nis. Gold­smith’s de­feat against Sadiq Khan has made peo­ple’s stance on many con­tro­ver­sial is­sues ev­i­dent, he said.
