PTI’s Aleem Khan files plea in ECP against speaker Ayaz Sadiq


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan on Tuesday submitted a plea in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) seeking valid record of transferred votes in NA-122 constituency of Lahore.

The PTI leader visited the ECP head office along with MPA Shoaib Siddiqui. However, they could not meet the chief election commissioner.

Aleem Khan handed over the application to the additional secretary.

The plea states that the ECP record shows that 26,000 new voters were registered and 4,600 votes were transferred during the last two years.

Aleem Khan claimed that only 812 voters personally confirmed that they had transferred their votes out of the constituency while the rest of the votes had been transferred against the voters’ will.

The plaintiff demanded valid record of transferred votes from NA-122 and asked the ECP to issue directives to the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to cooperate in this regard.

Talking to media after filing the application, Aleem Khan said that this time fraud instead of rigging took place in NA-122 by-election. He predicted that Ayaz Sadiq will be de-seated again.
