The Director General of Trade Organizations (DGTO) has formed a committee to find fake voters in the voters’ list of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) to ensure transparency in the upcoming elections.
Deputy Director of the institution Asma Khattak has nominated a four-member committee to scrutinize the voters’ list of ICCI and sought a report within 24 hours.
The Acting Chairman of Islamabad United Group (IUG) Shahid Zaman Shinwari, Vice Chairman Sarfaraz Mughal and other office-bearers have filed complaints with the DGTO alleging that there are hundreds of fake voters in the voters list which has made whole election process questionable.
The complainants said that ICCI is ruled by Founder Group since decades and they want to continue their grip on the chamber for which every tactic including fake votes are being used.
Many voters are not part of the business community and they are used to win the election which is against the principles of fair play, they added.
The complainants said whole drama is being orchestrated by the Secretary General of the ICCI Majid Shabbir who is getting undue benefits worth millions from the ICCI.
