Senate elections: PML-N alleges seats were publicly auctioned

Urges ECP to cancel results of seats where ‘black money’ is involved.

ISLAMABAD: While Senate poll results continue to pour in, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has started making accusations of rigging.

“Seats in the Senate elections were publicly auctioned,” said PML-N senior leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, who leads the opposition in the National Assembly.

The Election Commission of Pakistan should cancel the results of those Senate seats where it finds use of black money, allegedly floated by politicians for buying votes, Nisar urged. “The election commissioner has full powers to withhold or cancel results in light of the 20th amendment.”

Such “bad fish” should be expelled from Parliament, he said, adding that only “clean” politicians should be allowed.

If it was publicly auctioned, PML-N should have bid. You cannot complain about public auction where every one can bid, can you?

Were foreign countries allowed to bid? It would have brouhgt in some FDI!
