PTI registered an application with Election Commission of Pakistan on Tuesday against the alleged rigging in National Assembly constituency NA-71, Mianwali, by-elections.
The application said that NA-71 election should be announced null and void. It said that the ECP should order confirmation of the votes through thumb impression, besides checking the record of ballot papers. The PTI also submitted a CD and documentary proof regarding rigging in the election.
Speaking with the press people, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Vice Chairman of PTI, said that disqualification of Ayla Malik from contesting the NA-71 by-polls in July on the grounds that she had a bogus degree was a plan to keep her out of the polls and therefore the election was unfair and unjust. Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that a code of conduct was violated during the election campaign in Mianwali.
