While pointing towards the institution’s impartiality, Fawad said, “ECP is respectable to us and will remain.”
Chaudhry asked that the premier had said horse-trading during Senate polls was not stopped, was that the matter of shame for ECP?
The minister urged for a joint plan devised by the ECP and the government to stop rigging in the polls.
According to reports, Fawad added that the ECP neglected the directions of the Supreme Court for holding fair and free Senate elections.
He urged the institution that the video of Ali Haider Gilani, the audio of Nasir Hussain Shah and Maryam’s statement about the PML-N ticket are the proofs of rigging, which urgently need to be investigated.
Fawad Chaudhry further said, “We are confident that Prime Minister Imran Khan will successfully obtain the vote of confidence from the National Assembly.”
According to reports, earlier the Election Commission of Pakistan had expressed its disappointment over the allegations raised by prime minister Imran Khan during his address to the Nation yesterday.
