Karachi 30.07.15: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Sindh chapter General Secretary Senator Taj Haider said the Judicial Commission (JC) had completely ignored the fact that three progressive parties were not allowed to run an election campaign by the terrorist organisation, Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP). The elections were snatched away on gun point and handed over to the right-winged parties. This fact alone was enough to declaring the elections as rigged.
In a statement issued here Thursday, Senator Taj Haider said that the JC while giving comments on the shortcomings of the election commission did not cause to hear the ex-chief election commissioner (EC) or the other members of the commission.
He said that the ground fact is that the EC was divided in 3 and 2. The decisions were made on majority opinion. Three respected members of the EC simply refused to hear a single word against the right-winged political parties and went out of their way to support these parties.
He claimed that the EC bureaucracy, trained in rigging during many previous elections was openly working for the establishment. On many occasions, they refused to obey the directives of the EC Chief.
The record of decisions and opinions of different members should be closely examined so as to ascertain to which members were part of the so-called mismanagement of fair elections, demanded the Senator Taj Haider, adding that a special committee of the Parliament should be constituted to examine the entire record and then give its opinion on the conduct of each member of the EC.
