"On Nov 30, it will be decided if the status quo will succeed, or whether there will be a new Pakistan," he said.

The PTI chief said that there is great political awareness among the people, who have rejected the status quo.

"When the youth and women of a country decide for change, no power on earth can stop it," he noted.

The PTI chief said that the whole nation was now demanding prime minister Nawaz Sharif's resignation, adding that his party has exposed the rigging carried out by the Pakistan Muslim League -- Nawaz (PML-N) during the May 2013 general election.

Imran Khan said that he would make new revelations regarding electoral rigging next Sunday.

He said that the protests in Islamabad would continue until the resignation of Nawaz Sharif.

"I am telling you, I am not going to leave the sit-in until [Sharif] resigns," the PTI chief said.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif however, has rejected the PTI's demands for early elections and said Saturday that a general election would not be held in the country before 2018.
