Rashid Malik | 5 years ago | Reply | Recommend Since it was challenged by IMRAN Jhan of PTI that almost 37.40 Million Votes were False in the General Election of 2008, therefore, then CJ of SC-Pakistan duly cancelled those votes. But, it was never-ever bothered by Any Legal Expert to ask for the CANCELLATION of the Results of the whole ELECTION-2008. The current scenario of Pakistan=Political issue would had never happened, if the Results of Election-2008 declared nul & void.
