Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is badly trapped by commenting on Election Commission. The opposition has demanded strict action against them. Vice President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz said that action should be taken against PM Imran, as he has criticized the Election Commission. Also, has dragged the Pakistan Army into politics.
Actually, Imran had said that the Pakistani Election Commission did nothing to stop the horse-trading of votes while making fun of democracy. This has damaged the morality of the country. He said, the Election Commission allowed corruption at the top level. Everything was happening in front of the Election Commission, but no drastic step was taken. Bar code was not imposed on only 1500 ballot papers. These allegations of Imran have been rejected by the Election Commission.
President also admits PM’s lost faith: Maryam
Addressing a press conference in the capital Islamabad, Maryam Nawaz said, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) did not give a personal opinion in the presidential reference hearing of the Supreme Court. He said, the Election Commission gave its opinion under the Constitution and neither the ECP has the power to amend the Constitution nor the Supreme Court. The ECP took the right place during the hearing of the apex court. The President of Pakistan has also admitted that PM Imran has lost faith.
Opposition will boycott confidence vote
On the other hand, the opposition coalition ‘Pakistan Democratic Movement’ (PDM) has announced that it will boycott the confidence vote to be held in the National Assembly. PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman said that no member of the opposition will be involved in the National Assembly session to be held on Saturday. PDM candidate and former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday defeated the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Abdul Hafiz Sheikh in the Senate elections in a close contest.
