PESHAWAR, 24 July: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the judicial commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Nasirul Mulk has rejected all the allegations regarding organised rigging in the 2013 general elections.
In his address to the nation on Thursday night, the prime minister said the judicial commission has vindicated the stance of the government and people of the country. He said the commission provided every opportunity to all the parties to present their point of view, but those who hurled allegations failed to provide any proof about rigging.
Mr Sharif also revealed that he had given a written assurance that he will resign from his post if organised rigging was proved in the general elections. He said he gave the written assurance because he knew that the elections were transparent and there was no organised rigging.
The premier said the problems of the country could not be resolved through sit-ins on the roads but these problems will have to be resolved through the constitutional institutions. He said now the nation can’t afford further emotional demands and shows. The prime minister said it is time to forget about past mistakes and unite for the development of the country and strengthening of the democratic system. He said the country is moving in right direction of progress and development. He said all the political parties should play their role in the parliamentary committee for electoral reforms.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has accepted the decision of the judicial commission. He said he will come up with his point of view after seeing the report with detail.
