During his televised address to the nation on Thursday night, Prime Minister Imran Khan had questioned the transparency of the Senate elections, saying that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) failed to conduct fair elections.
“The Election Commission has damaged the democracy by holding Senate elections through secret ballot,” the Prime Minister said. “Why the ECP told the top court that the Senate elections should be held through the secret ballot?” the prime minister questioned.
The ECP, he said, could have employed the latest technology in order to know who the turncoats in the Senate elections were.
Taking strong exception to the prime minister’s allegations, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has summoned a high-level internal meeting today to review the speech of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who levelled serious allegations against the electoral body during the Senate polls during his address to the nation yesterday.
The meeting was underway and Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja was in the chair.
All members of the election commission were in attendance in today’s meeting. The commission has also acquired the video of the premier's speech.
