PoliticsFederal government demands ECP to resign

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The federal government has demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to immediately resign as it has failed to fulfill its responsibilities in holding transparent elections in the Country.

While addressing a Joint News Conference along with the Minister for Information and Broadcasting Syed Shibli Faraz and the Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain in Islamabad on Monday, the Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood said that the ECP has lost the confidence of all the political parties.


Shafqat Mahmood said that the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja and all its Members should resign to provide an opportunity to the Parliament to constitute a new and credible Election Commission which can ensure transparency and check corrupt practices in the polling process.

The minister also condemned the attack on the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Shahbaz Gill by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers.
