On the other hand, all the parties in the election made allegations of rigging and blamed the Election Commission for the delay in the results. We will take action according to the law. If any evidence of fraud is found, strict action will be taken. All decisions will be on merit.
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Shahbaz Gil says that the Election Commission has done a great job. After 10 hours, a few thousand votes could not be cast in Karachi. And you and every party are making noise of rigging. No one is happy with the result. Turnout only 9.6%. It is incomprehensible to hold elections in Ramadan and in the dangerous situation of corona.
