Pak election commission should look into vote rigging allegations: Prez Hussain says in I-Day speech

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Islamabad: In an unusual move, Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain in his Independence Day address, raised the issue of alleged rigging in the July 25 elections and asked the election commission to look into the complaints of political parties to make the poll process "fully transparent".

Addressing an official function held at the Jinnah Convention centre here to commemorate the country's 72nd Independence Day, Hussain said it is crucial for the country to make state institutions powerful and independent. Various political parties have alleged that elections won by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan were not fair and demanded a probe.

The PML-N came second in Pakistan's National Assembly with 82 seats.
