ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister and leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has urged the superior judiciary to take notice of fact-finding report of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) into Daska election matter, if it wanted to do something for the country.

Addressing a press conference along with Maryam Aurangzeb on Sunday, Abbasi said that he is hopeful that the superior judiciary would take a suo moto action as it has been exercising power of suo moto notices on other issues. He said that in his opinion if any government tries to steal the election through planning, it is a breach of the Constitution and can be tried under article 6.

He said that his party demands that there is need to take action on the report so that no one in the future can think of stealing the election. He said it is the test of judiciary today that if it can remove a prime minister for not taking a salary, whether it can take action against those hatching conspiracy for stealing Daska election.

QWP chief says govt should stop harassing ECP to work freely

Former prime minister said that if the judiciary wanted to do something for the country, then it should seek the ECP fact-finding report into Daska election and take action because it was attack or robbery on the system which is based on election.

He said that the country was going through a difficult situation today simply because the 2018 election was stolen. "We hope that the ECP would public this 33-page report, so that the people of the country could know what happens in elections in Pakistan", he said, adding that the government wanted to steal the next election through electronic voting machine because the government knows it would not be able to get even 10percent of votes.

He said that this party is also expecting from the ECP to give exemplary punishment to the people involved in trying to steal the Daska election. He regretted that even today the government wanted to change the law for making the ECP subservient.
