Asad Qaiser demands formation of judicial commission on alleged poll rigging

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Qaiser has demanded the formation of a judicial commission on alleged rigging in the recent general elections. Speaking in the NA, Qaiser said, “We want to create a very huge party and want to invite all those parties who have concerns on these elections, whether they are Balochistan’s political parties or Sindh’s or Punjab or Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s.” “We will gather everyone together for the Consitutition’s supremacy, for an independent judiciary, for civilian supremacy,” the PTI leader said. “I want to ask Mian sahib if some conscience is awakening within you or not? Are you feeling any shame or not?” Qaiser then demanded that a judicial commission comprising apex court judges be formed on the alleged rigging in the February 8 polls. PTI leader Asad Qaiser has condemned the raid on the residence of their presidential candidate Mahmood Khan Achakzai. Qaiser said, “A message was given that if someone makes a speech in the NA, his result will be this.” “I want to make this clear; that time of fear has passed. We have come out of all situations,” the PTI MNA said while referring to the crackdown against the party during the past year. Recalling his struggle of “29 years” in the PTI, Qaiser said that his party founder Imran Khan has decided to “remain in the country and face the circumstances”. Asad Qaiser has demanded that the Supreme Court constitute a judicial commission on the issue of the cipher that is at the heart of the PTI’s allegation of foreign involvement in their ouster.
