Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday accepted the apologies from Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry and Federal Minister of Railway Azam Swati for the case brought by the Commission.

Both leaders were instructed to be careful in the future. Nsiar Durrani, a member of ECP Sindh, stated that it is inappropriate to slander state institutions with baseless accusations.

Later, talking to media, Azam Swati thanked ECP for accepting his apology and said that the incumbent government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will support in strengthening the commission. We want to see ECP independent, he added.

The minister further expressed hope that ECP will take relevant decisions in the wake of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) use.

Earlier, Fawad Chaudhry and Azam Swati had tendered their apology to the ECP.

It is to be mentioned here that Fawad Chaudhry had criticized the election commission over raising questions on electronic voting machines that government plans to use in the next general elections.

Azam Swati also filed serious accusations against ECP and CEC for accepting bribes during the election.
