PTI asks ECP not to delay intra-party polls issue


The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Thursday demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to issue the certificate of its intra-party elections and return the party’s electoral symbol of ‘bat’ to it without any further delay.

In a press release issued by the Central Media Department, the PTI took strong exception to the delisting of the intra-party elections issue by the ECP for a second time and strongly condemned the ECP for unnecessarily delaying the matter.

A PTI spokesman said in the press release said that the ECP was a key instrument of violation of the Constitution and democracy in the country. The spokesperson also said that no commission had participated in “the violation of the Constitution and the law as shamelessly as being done today”.

The spokesperson charged that during the last two years, the current ECP had been involved in every incident of “open robbery on the political and democratic rights of the people”, to keep the doors of politics and elections closed on the people.

“The blind, dumb, deaf and handicapped commission’s sole objective has been to patronise criminals,” the spokesperson said, and urged the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) to act on a reference of Senator Ejaz Chaudhary against the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) and hold him accountable.

“The commission members should take guidance from the Constitution and the law instead of mocking democracy by obeying a criminal. The commission should issue the certificate instead of further delaying the issue of intra-party elections and return the electoral symbol of the bat to Tehreek-e-Insaf.”
