PESHAWAR, November 10: Federal Minister for Finance, Mr Ishaq Dar, has said the demand of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chief Mr Imran Khan to include spy agencies’ personnel in judicial inquiry commission for poll rigging issue is unconstitutional.
Mr Dar told the media that the government would follow the Constitution of Pakistan and that someone cannot impose their own will on various issues. He said that the judicial commission won’t be designed against the provisions of the Constitution.
The PTI chief has withdrawn his demand about the resignation of Pakistani Premier Nawaz Sharif for investigation into alleged rigging in the 2013 elections. He made the announcement in his speech to a PTI rally in Rahimyar Khan yesterday.
In order to investigate the rigging properly, Imran Khan appealed to the government to set up an impartial commission under the supervision of Supreme Court and also include officials from Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI) in it.
In reply to that demand, Mr Dar said the government had already showed consent to the demand concerning formation of the judicial commission, but that the appeal for deputing officials from intelligence agencies in the commission was something shocking.
