ISLAMABAD: Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Wednesday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan had failed to produce single evidence in the Election Tribunal in favor of his claim.
Talking to media in the National Assembly lobby, he said “I have been made victim of political terrorism as my constituency had been opened with out any evidence by the Tribunal.”
He further said that Election Tribunal should give verdict on basis of evidence and witness.
The speaker said that, “I have also suggested to the chairman of Election Reform Committee to include article that no constituency should be opened without any evidence.”
He said during investigation, 1300 vote proved fake resulting increased his votes. He expressed hope that the thumb verification would confirm his success soon.
However, he was of the view that recent SIM verification move had also proved that the Identity Card prepared before 2005 could not be read by the NADRA system.
He said life of ink being used by the Election Commission of Pakistan in the elections was around four to six hours. He expressed the hope that he would get justice.
To a question, he said, PTI member national assembly’s salary had been stopped as it would create audit objection.
He said the salary would be released if they attend the assembly session.
The speaker said that any members of the assembly could move application that resignation of PTI be approved, but it was the right of the member of the parliament to decide about their resignation.
While congratulating the newly-elected office-bearers of Parliamentary Reporters Association (PRA), he said the government believes in freedom of expression and would continue its efforts to facilitate media and provide them a conducive environment so that they could perform their obligations in accordance with their professional ethos.
