No party to score century in polls: JI


Jamat-e-Islami Chief Syed Munawar Hassan has predicted that no party will be able to score a century in the upcoming general elections.
Talking to media at the Karachi Airport on Saturday, he said several other parties including Jamat-e-Islami were expected to secure 10 seats each.
Hassan said those who could not control terrorism during five years in power were now bent upon dividing the nation between the liberals and the fundamentalists.
He said those who hijacked polls all the time still enjoyed support of the establishment, and were behind recent terror activities in order to cause delay in polls.
Earlier, speaking to media Munawwar said: “The deployment of Pakistan Army personnel outside the polling stations is immensely important to ensure smooth elections.”
The JI chief said the caretaker government was not fulfilling its responsibility of taking measures to hold elections peacefully. Those who permitted drone attacks were now complaining of the terrorism which had spread everywhere in the country, Munwar added.
