ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Thursday that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should be held answerable for not being able to ensure the use of magnetic ink during the general elections 2013.

Speaking at a session in the National Assembly, the interior minister said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had no part to play in the rigging that allegedly took place in the elections.

Nisar claimed that ECP constituted mainly of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) representatives. He further claimed that all the caretaker ministers were also proposed by the PPP.

"We asked for thumbprint verification of votes," he said, adding that whatever was in the power of the government, he was ready to promise.

"If our aim is to reveal the whole truth about elections, let's take the matter to Supreme Court," he proposed.

Don't know in which illusion this man lives. All he does is talk and just talk. Bahi pehlay 4 mein tau karwa lou phir 272 mein bhi karwa laina. They sack chairman at 0130 in the morning and then say it was for the merit. Hola.
