Dissolution of NA, PAs on different dates pre-polls rigging: Imran
02 January, 2013
ISLAMABAD: PTI chief Imran Khan has sharply reacted against Secretary Election Commission (EC) statement on dissolution of national and provincial assemblies on different dates terming it pre polls rigging.
In a statement issued by PTI secretariat Imran said Tuesday that if the national and provincial assemblies were not dissolved on the same date it would be a grave mistake. If it is done so it will give a pre polls rigging chance to the provincial governments, he added. This way the federal and provincial governments would get opportunity to influence the results of the polls, he remarked.
He described this step a flagrant violation of human rights saying " how strange it is that announcement with respect to caretaker government at federal level is made 25 days ahead of dissolution of provincial assemblies", he held.
If Punjab government remains in power even after dissolution of national assembly then PML-N government in Punjab will be given free hand to resort to polls rigging, he observed.
He called upon chief election commissioner Fakhar ud Din G Ebrahim to take immediate notice of the statement given by secretary election commission.
