The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday, responding to a protest demo organised by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) outside its office, said that the election body was fully aware of its constitutional responsibilities.
“We are committed to fulfilling our responsibilities without succumbing to any pressures,” the Election Commission of Pakistan said in a handout issued as opposition parties gathered outside its Islamabad office to protest against a delay in the investigations of the foreign funding case against the ruling party.
It said that the election commission is ready to hold free and fair polls at any time.
The election commission rejected the allegations of slow progress in the foreign funding case and said that it had made considerable progress in the case.
“We have further directed the scrutiny committee to hold its proceedings into the case thrice in a week,” the handout read.
