Imran Khan demands ECP to resign over JC report

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has demanded resignation from Election Commission claiming that ECP has lost moral authority to conduct next Local Bodies Elections.

“My reservations about the last elections remain unchanged. It was a fixed match by PML-N, Election Commission of Pakistan and Returning Officers,” Khan said while holding a press conference in Islamabad on Saturday.

“There is no room left for this Election Commission to continue. What is sad that if these incompetent people do not resign they will be the same people conducting upcoming local body polls?”

 “I accept the decision of the Inquiry Commission in the light of commitments I had made earlier,” he said.

“Although I commend the commission and Chief Justice Nasir ul Mulk for the way they conducted the inquiry from May to July, I am, however, hurt by their conclusion,” he said. “I had high exceptions from the commission after I attended the proceedings regularly.”

“The regret I have is that the Chief Justice left his work unfinished. They should have exercised their power to set up a Special Investigation Team for further probe.”

The SIT could have investigated the role of RO’s and missing forms, Khan contended.
