ECP directly involved in rigging: Sabzwari



Karachi, July 30 (TNS): Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Faisal Sabzwari on Monday said that these are in the first elections in Pakistan’s history in which Election Commission have been directly involved in result manipulation and rigging.

The MQM-P was flanked by Sindh governor Mohammad Zubair and other prominent MQM-leaders in the press conference.

The MQM-P expressed great reservations on counting process on July-25. “Political situation in country is changing with every passing moment. Rigging in election was carried out to ensure victory of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the elections”, claimed Sabzwari.

Sabzwari demanded chief election commissioner to immediately resign from the post after his dismal performance.

He further alleged that those constituencies in which MQM-P has raised objections are not being opened by the ECP.

Talking on the occasion, Zubair stated that objections persist on method adopted by the electoral body and claimed that mandate of MQM-P was stolen in Karachi.

Responding to a question regarding Karachi operation, Zubair insisted that MQM was not targeted in the operation.
