ISLAMABAD (APS) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Thursday announced its unanimous candidate for National Assembly (NA) Speaker election, Shafqat Mehmood, APS News reported.
According to details, PTI’s parliamentary party’s session took place in Islamabad after which, party’s national organizer Shah Mehmood Qureshi said while talking to the media that other parties will also be contacted for support in the election.
He said they will request Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) to also vote for the opposition candidate. He said that PTI has acquired evidence of transfer of votes in NA-122 by-election, claiming that 25 thousand new voters were added after the 2013 general election while 4 thousand votes were transferred out of the constituency.
Qureshi said Election Commission has already admitted it received transfer applications from 800 voters. He said the commission has failed to organize transparent and fair local body elections, claiming that the police and administration were used to favour the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party in Punjab.
The PTI leader claimed that children of even 13 years of age casted votes in the local body election. He said at least 11 workers of PTI were martyred in the process.
Shah Mehmood said he meeting with Chief Election Commissioner could not take place because of the busy schedule of Chief Election Commissioner, adding that they will send their requests in written form.
