ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has sought relevant records from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate regarding the NA-75 Daska by-elections besides asking other parties willing to submit any document to prove their claims.
A five-member commission headed by the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja heard the case related to by-polls held in NA-75 and its results on February 19.
The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) had raised reservations over the election process after the alleged disappearance of some presiding officers and stopping people in the polling stations to cast their votes.
During the hearing, PML-N counsel Salman Akram Raja said that the disappearance of the presiding officers had been used as a tactic to divert attention from vote-rigging. He said that ECP’s press release regarding the Daska by-polls was historical.
