ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has vowed to bring electoral reforms to eliminate corruption and horse-trading practices.

During a meeting with Senator Zeeshan Khanzada and Faisal Javed today, the prime minister said that the government is taking steps to make sure transparency in the next Senate polls.

He said the government would take all possible measures to ensure that the next Senate polls would be held through the open ballot. The prime minister said the whole nation knew well who stood on which side of history on the important issue of transparency in the electoral system.

The opposition was a supporter of the system based on rigging and a hurdle in the way of transparency while the government stood firm with its unwavering commitment to transparency in the electoral process, the PM  added. “Sadiq Sanjrani is a strong candidate for the top Senate slot”, he said hoped that he would win the election.

Besides, PM Imran lashed out at PDM’s joint candidate for the post of Senate chairman, Yousaf Raza Gilani, adding that the PPP leader had “smashed the concept of morality in politics and the whole nation is watching his actions”.

The PDM used the money to come first in the Islamabad seat, he said, referring to Hafeez Shaikh’s surprise loss to former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.

PM Imran said that the opposition’s vociferous on the steps to ensure transparency in the Senate polls was beyond comprehension. “Transparency in elections is the strength of democracy,” he maintained.
