Committee on poll rigging: Opposition presents its ToRs


ISLAMABAD: The Opposition has presented its Terms of Reference on Thursday in a session of the parliamentary committee constituted to probe rigging in General Elections 2018.

The parliamentary committee’s subcommittee held a session, in which the opposition parties presented the TORs in written form to the government.

The document was presented by the Pakistan People’s Party and included points from Pakistan Muslim League-N’s Rana Sanaullah and National Party’s Mir Hasil Bizenjo.

Rana Sanaullah said that the opposition has presented its ToRs today while the government has asked for time to present its own.

Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood said that they consider the elections to be fair and transparent, which is why they have no objection to making a committee.

He said that the government has accepted demands of the opposition earlier as well.

Mahmood said that in the previous polls, a judicial commission was formed and the decision given by it was accepted by them.
