Sports celebrity-turned politician Imran Khan is a frontrunner to become Pakistan’s next prime minister. But the run-up to the July 25 national election has been marred by the widespread perception and allegations that the powerful military is meddling in the democratic process on his behalf, to bring to power Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. VOA’s Ayaz Gul spoke to Khan about this and other matters during an election campaign rally in northwestern Pakistan.
