Imran Khan: cricketer, playboy and now a political spoiler

by Ani 3:18 mins

When Imran Khan tumbled spectacularly off a mechanical lift at an election rally this week, a frenzy of media coverage erupted, the last thing Pakistan's mainstream parties needed as they fend off a spoiler threatening to up-end the political order. Khan has predicted a "tsunami" of support for his party in Saturday's (May 11) general election as voters, particularly urban youth, turn against the traditional grandees of Pakistani politics after years of misrule and corruption. It could end up holding the balance of power if there is no clear-cut winner among the two main parties, as seems likely. Charismatic and - despite his 60 years - still athletic and craggily handsome, a jump in popularity has now brought Khan the political break he craved for so long.
