LAHORE:


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq has been invited to participate in PTI’s long march on August 14.


The JI chief conveyed the government’s response to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan and received a positive response. According to sources, the audit of 10 National Assembly seats was discussed and PML-N has agreed to conduct a recount. The sources revealed that Sirajul Haq will once again discuss the controversial seats of NA 122 and NA 56 with both parties.

In an effort to convince Imran to cut short the duration of the Azadi march, Sirajul Haq might join his sit-in, sources said.  They added that the PTI chief would be in contact with Siraj on the day of his long march and sit-in in Islamabad. Furthermore, all political leaders in opposition or the treasury benches in parliament would request Imran to end his protest. According to sources within the PTI when Imran will reach Islamabad he would demand the PM’s resignation. The presence of Siraj and other leaders will placate Imran and ensure that PTI’s long march is peaceful, legal and poses no threat to democracy.

In addition to recounting the constituencies, Imran’s draft of electoral reforms would be put before a parliamentary committee which would be considered as a priority draft.

Siraj claimed that the current democratic system needs to be revised as the Election Commission had failed to conduct free, fair and transparent elections.
