By-polls: PM Imran wants re-election in NA-75 Daska

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has advised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate of NA-75 to ask ECP for re-polling in 20 polling stations of the Daska constituency.

In a series of tweets, the prime minister said, “We have always struggled for fair and free elections”. “Even though there is no legal compulsion to do so before ECP announces results, I would request our PTI candidate to ask for re-polling in the 20 polling stations, he said.

“Opposition is crying hoarse over in the Daska NA-75 by-election adding that we are seeking open ballot for Senate elections because we want transparency,” he added.

Imran Khan said “We will always seek to strengthen a fair and free election process. Unfortunately others lack this commitment. When we wanted four constituencies opened after the 2013 elections, it took us over two years,” the PM added.

It is pertinent to mention here that the ECP on Saturday seized the electoral record of by-polls in NA-75 Daska after rigging allegations were leveled against each other in the constituency by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

Election Commissioner Punjab Ghulam Israr Khan today completed the inquiry into the record of NA-75 Sialkot-Daska by-poll.
