Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan, who also heads the State’s ruling party PML (N) AJK chapter, Sunday directed the local administration to ensure free and fair holding of scheduled Nov. 24 bye-election to the vacant Mirpur LA-3 city seat of AJK Legislative Assembly, strictly implementing the electoral code of conduct.
He was talking to the notables of the city at Mangla Rest House besides reviewing the electoral campaign of his ruling party candidate Chaudhary Sohaib Saeed as part of his due participation in electioneering for the ruling party’s nominee in the polls. The seat had fallen vacant following disqualification of the elected law maker from the constituency and one of his cabinet colleagues Ch. Muhammad Saeed in a contempt of court proceeding by the Supreme Court of Azad Jammu Kashmir on September 24 for a period of five years.
Raja Farooq Haider said election code of conduct would be implemented in letter and spirit and no one would be allowed to breach it. “The present PML-N government served the masses for three and half years. It not only resolved longstanding issue of the Mirpur district but also safeguarded its resources. I hope the people will wisely choose their representative in the upcoming bye-elections. Chaudhary Sohaib Saeed would be the right choice to complete the unfinished agenda of progress and prosperity”, Haider said.
