Islamabad (Pakistan), August 6: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's announcement that he would run for all nine Assembly seats has sparked outrage and suspicion throughout the country, as the already fragile economic situation could be worsened if the PTI chief wins all the seats by any means.Imran Khan declared his candidacy in all nine seats following the Election Commission of Pakistan's announcement to hold by polls in nine Assembly seats that were vacant after the National Assembly Speaker accepted the resignation of 11 MNAs of PTI.However, it should be pointed out that if the PTI leader wins elections from all nine constituencies, he will have to choose one out of the nine, which will allow the Assembly to run the elections again.The resultant political instability and increasing popularity of Imran Khan have negative consequences on the country's sluggish economy, according to the Dawn.

According to sources, the minimum cost of an election in one constituency is around Rs 50-100 million, while in more volatile and far-flung areas it is estimated to be around Rs 100 million, as costs include: printing and buying of materials such as ballot papers, forms, bags, etc., army deployment, recruitment of election personnel, IT equipment, and transport and fuel.In the event that Khan wins the elections, the country is also facing a financial crisis.Imran Khan is a member of the National Assembly now that he obtained the 2018 general elections from Mianwali.Khan contested from five constituencies and won all five.

He ultimately had to leave four seats and reclaim the Mianwali constituency.The Election Commission of Pakistan reported on Friday that bypolls on nine National Assembly (NA) seats would be held on September 25.According to ARY News, the National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf notified the nine PTI MNAs' resignations on July 28, including Shireen Mazari, NA-24 Charsadda, NA-31 Peshawar, NA-45 Kurram, NA-108 Faisalabad, NA-118 Nankana Sahib, Fazal Muhammad, Abdul Shakoor Shad, Jameel Ahmed, and Akram Cheem According to ARY News, PTI MNA Murad Saeed was the first PTI MNA to resign to the Speaker of the National Assembly, and then-Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Suri approved the PTI MNAs' resignations.In parallel, Pakistan's coalition government, which took power in April 2022, is grappling with a variety of political and economic issues.On the rise of the current account deficit, the economy's current account deficit has climbed to USD 17.4 billion, or 4.6 percent, over the previous fiscal year, causing rapid inflation, forcing the State Bank to raise borrowing rates to a multiyear high, and eroded investor confidence in the economy.
