Election Commission of Pakistan strongly condemns and rebuts statement and assertion made by Ayaz Sadiq

Islamabad, December 13, 2015 (PPI-OT): A news item has appeared in a section of press wherein National Speaker Ayaz Sadiq has criticized the Hon’ble Election Commission of Pakistan for forwarding the election petition with regard to NA-122 Lahore to the Election Tribunal for further necessary action.

The Election Commission of Pakistan strongly condemns and rebuts the statement and assertion made by Mr. Ayaz Sadiq as the Election Commission of Pakistan is fully aware of its all Constitutional obligations that are performed according to the established laws and rules. Furthermore, the Election Commission cannot bend itself or law to please one or the other interested party.

It is unfortunate that institutions are criticized for personal interests that should be avoided in the best interest of democratic polity and all responsible public office holders etc. should show respect to the institutions.
