ISLAMABAD: Reiterating his demands to make the electoral process free and fair, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson Imran Khan on Sunday demanded that a new election commission be established since the public had lost all confidence in the previous election commission.

He was addressing a rally organised by the PTI to protest the alleged rigging in the 2013 general elections.

PTI President Javed Hashmi, Secretary General Jehangir Khan Tareen, Vice Chairperson Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad also addressed the rally.

Announcing the next protest rally, which will be held in Faisalabad on May 23, Imran Khan said that if election rigging was not investigated, there will be protests in front of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) offices every Friday.

He also stated that overseas Pakistanis be given the right to vote and invited all political parties that believe the elections were not fair to join the PTI in its effort to fix the system. He also requested the judiciary to bring to justice those who were involved in the rigging of the last general elections.

“The public’s mandate was stolen,” Khan said, adding that the election process would not improve if those who were involved in election rigging were not brought to justice.

The PTI chief announced a 9-point charter of demands that aims to make the election process free and fair.

unable to understand, what IK want from these protests, why he didnt initiated protest against Geo, NS, returning officers and others a year ago, suddenly someone gives him a wake up call and said lets go and start a fun gaime with innocent people of Pakistan. PTI must have realized after Faisal abad rally that how popular this party is in 3rd biggest city, where all city seats and 90% of district level seats won by PMLN in electrion2013. PTI could only gather a crowd of 10~15 thousand (as per express tribune) which is even less that a local MNA public gathering. khan sb hun aram aye.???
