ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz has said the opposition’s stance against open balloting in the Senate election is illogical and beyond comprehension.
Talking to the media, the minister said instead of supporting the government’s efforts to introduce electoral reforms, the opposition was creating a hurdle by opposing open balloting in the senate election.
“PTI wants to bring transparency in the electoral process to make the Parliament true representative of the people,” he added.
Shibli Faraz said people are desirous of transparent Senate elections and the government is fully determined to this end. He said the politics of money needs to be ended and candidates should be elected on the basis of their capabilities.
The minister said buying and selling of votes undermine democracy and moral values, adding that the Election Commission of Pakistan will also be strengthened to further enhance its performance.
He said that opposition parties will not succeed in their immoral designs as their alliance is unnatural. He said the entire nation knows who was behind the sale purchase of votes in the past and now, they are once again active for the same purpose.
