Sirajul Haq declares Feb 8 Elections rigged and demands CEC’s resignation
Jamaat-e-Islami leader, Sirajul Haq, has accused Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja of manipulating the February 8 polls and is demanding his resignation.
The party’s central leadership, led by Siraj, convened a meeting at their headquarters in Mansoora to address the aftermath of the elections. Siraj vehemently criticized the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), alleging that it showed favoritism towards the PML-N, PPP, and MQM parties during the general elections, thereby denying a level playing field for all candidates.
He argued that the election results failed to accurately reflect public sentiment and were unjust to the voters. Furthermore, Siraj highlighted the concerns raised by international organizations and media regarding the fairness and transparency of the elections, exacerbating the already polarized and destabilized political landscape.
Holding the ECP accountable for neglecting its constitutional duty, he called for the establishment of an independent and impartial commission to investigate the matter.
