Agencies Add: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said they admitted elections for the sake of country but not rigging.
Addressing a gathering in Islamabad High Court Bar, he said at least 50 votes were cast on a single thumb impression in different constituencies in 2013 elections. “I accepted elections for the sake of country, but not the rigging,” said Imran.
“It was the only election in the country’s history after which the ruling party also alleged that rigging took place,” the PTI chief said. He said no system is better than democracy adding that Pakistan still remains devoid of genuine democracy and current moment of time is decisive for democracy.
He further said two significant features of democracy are meritocracy and accountability. Prevalence of merit promotes talent and brings it forward whereas accountability can hold leaders answerable to the law and ensure that they are not above the law. He said unaccountability proved to be detrimental to institutions.
Khan emphasized to ensure rule of law before elections to restrain criminal elements from benefiting from the system adding that one takes it to roads when institutions fail to give justice.
He further referred to Indian democracy stating that India’s election commissioner conducted transparent elections that led that country to move forward with free media and free judiciary.
Judges should be selected on merit. All political parties admit to rigging including the ones who won then why all the hassle about our demand of recounting in just four constituencies, he urged. PTI Chairman offered to conduct recounting in any constituency of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, if so desired.
He said the demand to recount votes in only four constituencies was just in the wake of country’s critical situation adding that he demanded the same in his first address in the National Assembly, at the Supreme Court, in the election tribunal to this date.
Imran said lawyers struggled to bits for restoration of democracy. He urged legal fraternity to support his struggle for bringing “genuine democracy” in the country. He further stated that he was a part of lawyers’ movement for free judiciary and has always protested against elements aiming to snub free media.
Which law abstains to chant ‘go Nawaz go’, he questioned. Imran Khan lamented Haq Nawaz’s death stating that he was son of soil and his sacrifice would not go vain. In 1965, we were ahead. Now India has developed, leaving behind Pakistan
