The Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja has summoned an important meeting to review the allegations hurled at the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) by Prime Minister Imran Khan in his speech.
Yesterday, PM Imran in his speech criticised the ECP regarding the recent Senate elections and said, “Now I want to talk to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), you have the most important role in the country, it is your responsibility to ensure free and fair elections. Why did you present before the Supreme Court that open ballots cannot be held?
“Even when the court said that ballots can be secret but there must be some way of tracing votes, the ECP said they cannot do that as well. Couldn’t a simple bar code be added to 1500 ballots?”
“I want to know, who are the 15 -16 people from our country that sold out. There should be a way of finding that out. The ECP was given the chance to fix the country’s elections; yet you have discredited and besmirched the democracy of the country.”
All members of the ECP will be present in the meeting.
