Shibli: PML-N expert in manipulating election results


Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz said on Thursday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had become an expert in the art of manipulating election results during the past many decades.

The history was witness that the PML- N had always won elections on the basis of bullying, rigging and electoral fraud, he said talking to the media here outside the Election Commission of Pakistan along with PTI leader Usman Dar and and NA-75 candidate Ali Asjad Malhi.

He said PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz had rightly said yesterday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) did not know the art of rigging the elections. Whatever the tales of rigging were narrated by the PML-N’s legal counsel before the ECP were in fact related to their own actions.

The PTI candidates could not be intimidated by threats and firing as the party was committed to reform the system, he added. The minister said the PML-N failed to provide any concrete proofs and evidences of rigging in NA-75 Daska bye-elections.

He said the PML-N leaders considers victory in every election their birth right, and if otherwise, they started crying foul. He reminded the media that it was the PTI which had raised its voice against rigging in the 2013 general election.—APP
