Pakistan: PML-N plans protests against PoK poll ‘rigging’

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 28 Jul 2021, 12:18 pm

Lahore: The  PML-N leadership has refused to accept the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) polls results and even accused the Punjab government of using its machinery to rig the elections.

The party leaders are planning to move to the courts and holding a protest drive against the alleged rigging.

“I have not accepted the AJK election results… and I will not. I had neither accepted the results of the 2018 general election nor this fake government. The PML-N will soon announce a strategy on this shameful rigging in the AJK polls,” PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz tweeted as quoted by Dawn News.

The PTI clinched 25 seats, nine of them in Pakistan, while the PML-N got six seats including two in Pakistan, according to unofficial results, reports the Pakistan newspaper.

“July 25 will be remembered as the day of rigging by vote thieves in the country. The Buzdar administration sent police, teachers, polling and other administrative staff to AJK from Punjab to ensure rigging in the polls. The Punjab government also openly used its machinery to rig polling in nine constituencies falling in the province,” PML-N Punjab Information Secretary Azma Bokhari alleged as quoted by Dawn News.

Talking to Dawn, the PML-N lawmaker further said the party was considering moving courts and holding protests to challenge the rigging.

“The AJK election was a repeat of the 2018 general polls. In the 2018 election, the Results Transmission System was compromised and in AJK, similar tactics were adopted,” Bokhari alleged, adding that even ballot papers of PML-N candidates were found burnt in some constituencies.
