Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz (Maryam Nawaz) stated that despite the occurrence of state terrorism, Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) reached NA-75. The Skars State by-election failed.
Talking to media persons in Jati Umra, Maryam Nawaz said that people of Daska fought for the democracy despite rigging in the elections and rejected sugar, gas and flour thieves.
Talking about alleged disappearance of presiding officers some polling stations, the PML-N leader said “They talk about fog, was fog only in these 23 areas?”
She said that the entire country now knows how the PTI government came to power. “I want to thank the Prime Minister for showing his reality to the public.”
She said that Daskar’s chaos was proof that Imran Khan rigged the 2018 election.
“If we knew PTI will resort to killing people for votes, we would have given our seats to them.”
She added that after this incident, people everywhere in Pakistan rejected the prime minister and his government.
PML-N accused the ruling PTI of attempting to manipulate the Sialkot NA-75 poll, and the results were retained by the ECP.
On the other hand, the Election Commission of Pakistan has directed the returning officer of Daska to conduct a complete inquiry over the issue of NA-75 by-poll election results.
Sources said that the Election Commission will decide whether to release the result of the constituency after a thorough inquiry. The Election Commission will take a final decision after a detailed report of the Returning Officer and will review the report in a meeting on Tuesday.
The Returning Officer expressed doubts about the results of the 20 polling stations in the preliminary report. The source said he also expressed reservations about the role of the police and administration in the initial report.
