Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Wednesday censured the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) for the alleged irregularities in the recent local government (LG) polls in Sindh.
In a Twitter thread, Imran Khan said, “After getting reports on the latest LG elections in Sindh it is apparent that the PPP has no commitment to fair and free elections.”
“Instead it uses force, blackmail, police harassment, money to get votes. Now also clear why the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), Cabal of Crooks and their handlers sabotaged electronic voting machines (EVMs),” he added.
Khan said, “EVMs allow for transparency and immediate results so prevent rigging – engineering of results. Right now results of LG elections which should have come out within a few hours at most, were coming out in a staggering delay some for days, allowing for massive foul play.”
If this is the sort of elections ECP, the State & PDM want then the stability that elections are meant to bring will not happen. Instead such manipulated elections will only cause more agitation, polarisation & anarchy.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) January 18, 2023
While criticising the ruling coalition, the PTI chief said, “If this is the sort of elections ECP, the state and PDM [Pakistan Democratic Movement[ want then the stability that elections are meant to bring will not happen. Instead such manipulated elections will only cause more agitation, polarisation and anarchy.”
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) are protesting after the alleged manipulation of LG polls results in different union councils (UCs) of the metropolis.
