Fawad Chaudhry criticized the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for protesting against the proposed election bill.

The minister said that the ECP cannot raise questions over the Parliament’s decisions, noting that the commission’s work is to apply the law permitted by the Parliament.

“If someone wants to do politics then they must leave ECP and form a political party. Parliament is supreme, ECP should respect the privileges of the Parliament,” said Chaudhry.

The MNA also demanded that it is the political governance’s decision to choose the process for elections, not the ECP. He added that parliament will figure out the process to hold elections.

The minister also claimed that the ECP was embodied in a committee headed by the President.

Whereas the minister stated that the ECP should make preparations for electronic voting.

“We possess the ability to develop electronic voting machines,” said Chaudhry.
