Earlier, amid allegations of rigging in recently held by-poll in Sialkot’s Daska town, Prime Minister Imran Khan asked his party candidate to ask for re-polling in the controversial 20 polling stations.
His statement comes after PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz demanded the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to order re-election in entire NA-75 constituency and not only on 20 polling stations.
She alleged that the PTI used several tactics to rig the by-poll including manipulating the election results of 20 polling stations by taking ECP officials hostage.
“Have always struggled for fair & free elections. So even though there is no legal compulsion to do so before ECP announces results, I would request our PTI candidate to ask for re-polling in the 20 polling stations Opposition is crying hoarse over in the Daska NA-75 bye- election,” PM Imran said on Monday in a tweet.
We will always seek to strengthen a fair and free election process. Unfortunately others lack this commitment. When we wanted 4 constituencies opened after the 2013 elections, it took us over two years.
