March 9, 2024 (EIRNS)—The International Monetary Fund responded March 8 to the letter from Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking an audit of the 2024 Pakistan elections. Khan, who is leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), is currently imprisoned; in February he sent a letter to the IMF asking them to audit the election, which was widely considered corrupt, before negotiating a new loan agreement. The international lender received Khan’s letter on Feb. 28.

“The IMF, as an international institution with a narrow mandate on economic issues, does not comment on domestic political developments. However, given the importance of the institutional environment for economic stability and growth, we do encourage the fair and peaceful resolution of all electoral disputes,” the IMF spokesperson said in response to Khan’s letter.
