Using EVM’s despite ECP’s objections shows PTI’s rigging intentions: PML-N
LAHORE: Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi claimed on Saturday that the PTI government’s desperation to bring about electronic voting machines, despite ECP objections, indicates that they want to use the technology to rig the next elections.
“PTI does not want to accept that the decision of using EVMs rests with the Election Commission of Pakistan,” said the former prime minister while addressing a press conference along with PML-N Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal and Secretary Information Marriyum Aurangzeb.
He pointed out that the ECP had shared how the machines were prone to rigging at multiple levels. He added that the cost of Rs1 million for machines also raises a big question mark.
“Then the data for every machine would be different for every polling stations. Even after that the commission had said that their operating system could easily be tempered with to yield desired results,” said Abbasi.
PML-N’s senior vice president also shared that the ECP had pointed out that successful Western democracies including Germany, Holland, Italy and Finland had used and discarded the EVMs. He added that the body had stated that the machines were not effective mechanisms and could not play any role in eliminating rigging.
