ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that the party has compiled a 2,000 paged white paper, which he claims proves that the elections were rigged. 

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, he said, “if the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) fails to put a stop to rigging in the upcoming elections then it will be responsible for the consequences.”

He added that during the general elections the party had “full faith” on ECP and weren’t prepared to take any steps against rigging. However, the party was now prepared, he stated.

PTI Chairman said that the focus behind the press conference was to ensure improvement in the electoral process.

He said that if voters lose their faith in the election process then the voter turnout would decrease.

“Voter turn-out rate was immensely affected after the 1970 general elections owing to massive rigging, failing democracy and martial laws. This time, however, it increased after many years.”

“It’s not just PTI but others who have also complained about rigging in the general elections. We requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan to conduct a thumb print verification process in just four constituencies but it was revealed that he already had 20,000 cases pending,” said Khan.

“What could be more important than this?’ he added.

The PTI chairman said that a lot of secrets will be unveiled in the white paper document.

Bringing his address to a close, he recommended that biometric polling be introduced for the next elections.

“We will introduce this system in our (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) province,” he said.

    Imran Khan sb, for God sake, leave this rigging thing aside now, been more than 3 months now and you are still banging your head against the same issue.

    This has really undermine the party’s position and its perspective have been put in a disarray. There are so many issues running in our beloved country starting from the basic necessities of life, which no leader takes care of and just want to score with people in anyway possible, and that is not the right politics.

    Simply accept that you were defeated and MOVE ON! Same was the case with Gore when he was defeated against Bush BUT he accepted the results and moved on, No one is above the constitution and that should be respected and obeyed with due diligence.

    I hope IK changes his stance and gets his focus aligned on the noteworthy matters, the REAL matters that are troubling our natiion.

And if Khan proves to be in a state of denial then he better grow up just as democracy is growing in PK.

    I think this man has reached the point of empty rhetoric whereby no one even listens to his rants anymore. 2000 pages, really? Does anybody have the time to even read that. I mean what could this man possibly have to say about elections being rigged that took 2000 pages of space? Even if systematic rigging is found and every single detail about it is mentioned in the “white paper” it won’t take 2000 pages.

    In Suo Moto Act against Imran Khan, SC clarify the rules and procedures to Imran Khan, the Court said that once you logged your complaint with the Election Tribunal then SC cannot intervene in these matters. In my opinion 2000 pages mostly consist of applications related to change in polling scheme etc. Nothing can come out from this.

And please don’t make ridiculous comparisons between the U.S. elections and Pakistan’s – the two are poles apart in case you haven’t noticed. When is the last time you saw stamped ballot papers being torn and burnt? Thumbprints being replicated? Victory margins of 70,000-0 votes? All of which is on video evidence by the way…

    This is a very good approach by PTI. Present the evidence and not just rhetoric. Even though it was the duty of the system to produce the evidence it is appreciable that PTI put in the effort to make the evidence part of the history. Other parties are just crying on media without any desire to actually rid the electoral process of corruption.

    Also it’s a shame that ECP is not questioning Fazlur-Rehman as he incites religious hatred by calling the other party Jewish just to get votes. According to my understanding such activities are not allowed during the election campaign. But then !!!

There are more pressing issues of the TTP terrorists eating alive the people of KP and elsewhere in Pakistan, not to mention the dire straits that our economy is in. Instead of these useless exercises putting out a 2000 page dossier on the elections, you should invest more time to work out a plan and strategy to get Pakistan to defeat the TTP and get the country back on the track of progress. This is what matters more to us Pakistanis but unfortunately, your priorities and those of your party are as confused even now as they ever were.

    Nobody will bother going through this and more importantly no action will be taken to address your gripes about the elections.

    Fear God and focus on things that are killing the people of Pakistan and putting their kids out on the streets.

    He chose 16-18 constituencies because including all is not necessary to prove that rigging took place. All you need is one. Including all would be impractical and unnecessary to say the least.

    As for those saying that he needs to get over it need to understand the importance of setting a precedence. Well he did. He did accept the defeat albeit his allegations of rigging and is sitting in the Parliament. He isn’t asking to dissolve the assemblies and abolish the system of democracy all together. He is writing it for the history of Pakistan that it is not okay to rig. Next time if a party rigs an election, it wouldn’t be able to say that “ye na pehlay kabhi howa hae, aur na ab howa hae”. Next time a court takes up a case, they can cite this as a record of rigging in the past. This is historical.

    This document might not seem to be a fruitful one right now but be sure of the fact that it does absolve, at least a little, the PTI of its responsibility of taking democratic means of protest.

    @Aysha M:
    yes you MQM blind supporter, IK has already said this many times. It is ECPs responsibility to make sure and take action including seats where PTI won.

    IK lost the elections and he has written a 2000 page complaint about rigging. When are you going to write about the problems facing the people who elected you and the bunch of criminals to NA and KPK? When are you going to write about the causes of terrorism plaguing the country? These 2000 pages are just a way to vent your anger about the elections which have impacted you alone. Grow Up!

    I still don’t understand why the PTI did not prepare for the possibility of fraud and rigging during the recent general elections. Blind Freddy knew rigging on a massive scale would take place.

    PTI has won the seat vacated by Shahbaz Shareef in Punjab as well as a seat vacated by Zulfikhar Khosa a central leader of PMLN.
    PMLN used all state ministries to support its candidate in Punjab. PTI if wanted could have won the seat in PESHAWER but we do not believe in dishonest practices. We all saw the use of fire arm in Peshawar and Punjab by the winning candidate. None of the PTI candidate would resort to such blatant violation of EC laws. . After massive scale rigging on May 11TH Election people did come out to vote as they have lost confidence in the election process. Over all voting percentage was only 18% in yesterday’s election. Elections results started coming before 5 pm.In one constituency in Punjab a complete result was announced at 5.10 pm with OVER 27’000 VOTES COUNTED. How is that humanly possible? It takes time to break the seal of ballot boxes, opening the folded ballot papers and then counting. The Election Commission and Returning officers should be sacked who allowed the counting the votes before the end of election time. If the EC is fair that they should disqualify Bilore for resorting to automatic weapon firing we also saw on TV CHANNELS.

    Asad Umer has won and that is good news for all sensible Pakistanis. If state machinery was not used Asad Umer would have won by a big margin.
