Federal Information Minister Senator Shibli Faraz on Wednesday said that the government wants to bring its people to the Senate according to their qualifications.

Shibli Faraz said that Prime Minister Imran Khan believes in transparency and merit of vote, truth always prevails over lies, Imran Khan wants truthful people to represent the people in the Senate.

Faraz hoped that the Supreme Court’s verdict would be in favor of the truth, adding that history would hold the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) accountable. There is no contradiction in our words and deeds.

He said the government is committed to end the obsolete system of buying and selling of votes and give chance to capable candidates in elections.

He said the opposition alliance believes in politics of buying and selling and it is also representing the status quo. The Information Minister said that electronic voting will make the voting system transparent. PML-N humiliated us by opening 4 constituencies and we showed positive attitude.

Shibli Faraz said that Prime Minister Imran Khan accepted the challenge of re-polling at 20 polling stations in Daska because he is not a ‘corrupt man.’

“Imran Khan and our government will end outdated traditions,” he added. People who come to parliament with money have nothing to do with democracy.
