Maryam Nawaz Claims PTI Govt ‘Planned Rigging’ in By-Elections But ‘Miserably Failed’
By Our Web Desk
The PTI-led government planned rigging through police and the district administration but it failed miserably in the by-elections, PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz on Sunday.
Talking to the media in Jatiya Umra before leaving for Daska, Maryam said that she was going to greet the people of Daska. She further said that with the pieces of evidence coming forward, “the real face of the incumbent government has been revealed.”
“These people should clearly know their position, the people of our four provinces of Pakistan have rejected them,” she added.
The PML-N leader said that the government had revealed through Daska polls how these people were imposed on the masses in back 2018.
Maryam Nawaz will visit the house of PML-N leader Nausheen Iftikhar in Daska and will also offer condolences to the families of the youth who died during the recently-held by-elections.
ECP suspects rigging
The Election Commission (ECP) of Pakistan had officially said on Saturday that it suspects rigging in the by-elections for the NA-75 constituency in Sialkot.
The ECP issued on Saturday afternoon an explanatory statement on the delay and suspension of the by-election results for the NA-75 Daska constituency.
Yesterday, the results of the NA-75 by-poll were withheld on the PML-N’s request amid a controversy surrounding 23 presiding officers who had allegedly ‘gone missing’ late in the night.
According to police officials, the 23 polling officials had gotten stuck in far-flung areas of the constituency due to fog. In a late-night development, police had retrieved the officers and brought them to the office of the district returning officer, where leaders of PML-N and PTI were also present.
