Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz on Wednesday said that the ruling PTI will utilise all it’s political, democratic and legal options to ensure Sadiq Sanjrani’s victory as chairman Senate.
The minister reiterated that Prime Minister Imran Khan has a strong commitment to fight against immoral and undemocratic tactics, having previously said that the opposition was harming democracy by using illegal and immoral tactics, including the sale and purchase of votes.
صادق سنجرانی کی جیت کے لئے ہر سیاسی، جمہوری اور قانونی حربہ استعمال کریں گے۔اپوزیشن خریدو فروخت سمیت تمام غیر قانونی اور غیر اخلاقی ہتھکنڈے استعمال کر کے جمہوریت کو نقصان پہنچا رہی ہے۔ عمران خان نے غیر قانونی اور غیر جمہوری ہتھکنڈوں کے خلاف اعلان جنگ کیا ہوا ہے۔— Senator Shibli Faraz (@shiblifaraz) March 10, 2021
"The opposition parties under the PDM want to bring the incumbent government under pressure," Shibli said, adding, "but Prime Minister Imran Khan won't accept any pressure or be influenced [by them]”, he stated earlier on March 7.
The PTI leader reasoned that the reason the ruling party was still functioning was that the party never gave up its ideology for petty gains.
The election of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani as a senator was challenged with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) last week.
The petitioner had stated that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate's win should be declared null and void as the polls were not transparent and further asked the electoral authority to investigate horse-trading in the polls and take action against those responsible.
