PTI, JI forms committee to review LG elections

The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi Emir Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman announced on Saturday that a four-member committee has been constituted to review what happened during the elections, notwithstanding the uncertainty surrounding the outcomes of the LG election.

JI had challenged the polling results and claimed to have won the majority of seats in the port city’s local elections.

The party also requested action against the district returning officers (DRO) and returning officers (RO) responsible for the rigging and improper vote counting in six union committees of Karachi.

Rehman stated during a press conference with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh President Ali Zaidi that other political parties should defend the winning party’s electoral mandate.

The JI chief added that his party wants to reach a consensus for Karachi’s development and that “everyone’s mandate should be recognized but it should be legal.”

Rehman stated that the party has concerns about the constituencies but added that many people had voted for them.

He said that because the results had been changed, they had provided the relevant information to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). “According to Form-11, the results were altered, and the UCs were also decreased during the vote recount,” he claimed.

He continued by saying that the Pakistan People’s Party stood to gain from the entire recounting process (PPP). If the People’s Party had fairly won the polls, he continued, “We wouldn’t have any objections.”

Rehman claimed that JI had proposed to PTI that Karachi’s mayor be chosen unanimously.

Zaidi claimed that both the PTI and JI were in touch with one another before and after the elections. Everyone was aware of the drama surrounding the local body elections, he claimed.

“The city is under the control of the destructive Zardari mafia. The fact that people will vote for them has done nothing for Karachi “Zaidi stated

According to the PTI leader, both parties agreed to establish a committee to investigate what took place during the LG elections.
