ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Monday said that National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq should be suspended until results of forensic evidence of rigging in NA-122 he has submitted to the tribunal arrive.
Speaking to the media after meeting the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) retired Justice Sardar Mohammad Raza Khan today, he said that he has requested for daily tribunal hearings.
The PTI chief went on to say that he has also requested the CEC that overseas Pakistanis should be given the right to vote in the next elections as well as a biometric system should be introduced for the polling process.
He further said that the tribunals were supposed to make their decisions within four months and it has now been two years.
Khan also said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is so incompetent that they do not even know how to rig polls properly. He said that after forensic tests, there is evidence that there is a difference in signatures of Presiding Officers.
He went on to say that the Returning Officers (RO) had no records of Form 15s with them and that 20 polling stations have the same person’s signature.
The PTI Chief said that the PML-N is demanding that the tribunal results should not reach the Judicial Commission.
The PTI chief also claimed that the value of a vote for the Senate elections has reached twenty million rupees and after the discovery of secret ballots, the PTI is pursuing open balloting for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
