ECP fails to hold transparent polls


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Leader Sadaqat Ali Abbasi while reacting to Hafeez Shaikh’s loss by saying that not PDM but “money had won” senate elections and Election commission of Pakistan (ECP) had failed to hold transparent elections.

Talking to media, he said after Ali Haider’s “confession” that the video was true, it was the ECP’s responsibility to declare Gilani ineligible to contest elections and file a reference against him.

He said it was necessary to stop all such mafias to fulfill their nefarious designs, and the ECP’s role in that regard was crucial.

He said that beauty of democracy was in holding of transparent elections and only independent institutions could strengthen the democratic process.—APP
