The opposition on Thursday presented Terms of references (TORs) in written form to the government in a session of the parliamentary committee. The committee was constituted to investigate the alleged rigging in general elections 2018.
Pakistan People’s Party, Pakistan Muslim League-N’s Rana Sanaullah and National Party’s Mir Hasil Bizenjo, presented the document.
According to the opposition ToRs, the committee will have to investigate the following questions.
After the meeting, Convener Shafqat Mehmood told media, “The government will look at the ToRs presented by the opposition and add whatever is possible.”
“We still think that the elections were conducted in a transparent manner which is why our party did not raise any objection over the formation of an investigation committee but until recommendation on Article 225 does not come in progress cannot be made,” he said.
PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah said, “We do not need to provide a written stance on Article 225. Our stance is clear, this article is not a hurdle in the way of investigations.”
PPP’s Naveed Qamar said, “The government’s attitude in this regard will be known when investigation work takes a practical shape. The government is right now stuck over the issue that parliament does not have the investigation right.”
