PTI has condemned the lies being put out by the govt on the findings of the NA 122 Commission
Central Information Secretary PTI has condemned the lies being put out by the govt on the findings of the NA 122 Commission at the hearing today where both sides lawyers were present:
Mazari said the Commission's judge said that his mandate was to see what irregularities had happened and now it was up to the Tribunal judge to pass judgement on rigging in the light of the irregularities that have been put on the record.
For the govt to claim that no rigging had been found is a blatant lie.
Amongst the major irregularities found by the Commission in NA 122 and which are now part of the record are the following:
1. Form XIV and XV have not been found in many of the polling bags.
2. In those form XV where serial numbers are missing, the relevant polling stations' results will be declared null and void.
3. Different coloured ballot papers have also been found.
4. The Commission judge referred to "Minor discrepancies" which, when asked to clarify, he defined as where there were 10 votes at issue. These "minor discrepancies" the Commission found in 280 polling stations which adds up to 2800 votes.
Mazari said that the Commission has substantiated PTI's claims on the types of rigging that had taken place. The NA 122 Commission findings also are in line with the rigging highlighted by Aitzaz Ahsan in his White Paper on NA 124.
Mazari demanded the Speaker NA step down now as he has lost all moral authority to fill the Speaker's post. She also asked the govt to stop twisting the findings of the NA 122 Commission and to stop lying to the nation.
