Pakistan News : Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan Sunday said the entire Pakistan has lost trust in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and demanded its reconstitution as an ‘independent and strong’ ECP.
Addressing a large gathering of PTI workers and supporters at D-Chowk here, Imran Khan said: “We want an independent and strong Election Commission.”
He said the Returning Officers (ROs) should function under the ECP, adding the existing ECP did not have ROs under it.
“We want scrutiny of results in the four constituencies.”
Demanding reconstitution of ECP, Imran Khan said those responsible for ’35 punctures’ must not be made part of the new ECP.
He also demanded that the overseas Pakistanis be given right to vote as per Supreme Court orders.
Imran Khan announced to protest every Friday in front of ECP building until his party’s demands are met.
Taking a dig at the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-N, he said Zardari was better than PML-N because the former did what he did but the PML-N said one thing and went ahead did exactly the opposite.
“They said there is no restriction on holding a protest but on the other hand blocked the ways to the protesters,” Imran Khan lamented.
“Learn to speak the truth,” Imran Khan advised PML-N.
Imran Khan thanked the participants of the rally for taking part in the demonstration and ‘making it a success’. “All out efforts were made to make the demonstration a failure.”
Recalling PM Nawaz Sharif’s recent statement in which he said, ‘you neither play yourself nor allow others to play’, Imran Khan said: “I want to play but I want you to play in the presence of neutral umpires.”
