Karachi [Pakistan], February 19 (ANI): Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said Thursday that Pakistani lawmaker Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would be happy to vote for his party in the Senate elections because they “know the Prime Minister. The government led by Imran Khan is out “.
Speaking at a meeting in Karachi celebrating PPP member Yousuf Murtaza Baloch’s victory in the Malir poll, Bilawal said, “If the government has confidence in its members, why try to enter through the back door?”
According to a Geo News report, Bilawal said that the PTI lawmakers would “be happy to vote for PPP” because they “knew that the government was out”.
He also warned Imran Khan that his party “will not allow anyone” to make Senate elections “controversial” or “rigged” them.
They thought we were going to boycott [Senate] elections and make it easier for them, “he said.
“Wherever the by-elections are held, the government suffers shameful losses,” he said, adding that the victory in the PS-88 by-election “proves that Karachi is the city of Bhutto”.
“The cards played by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) have put them (PTI) in a state of panic,” Bilawal said while highlighting that the Opposition alliance would “add to their worries” in Islamabad, Punjab and Sindh, in the Senate elections.
“Their concern makes them try to rig the election through someone or someone else,” he added.
The Election Commission of Pakistan has announced that Senate elections will take place on March 3, reports Geo News.
The announcement comes days after Pakistani President Arif Alvi signed the 2021 Election Law (Amendment) to pave the way for Senate elections to be held by “an open and identifiable vote”.
The regulation states that according to Section 226 of the Constitution: “All elections under the Constitution, apart from that of the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister, will be conducted by secret ballot”. The Ordinance will enter into force “immediately” and “extend to the whole of Pakistan,” the President said.
Pakistan’s opposition leaders fiercely oppose the government’s move to hold Senate elections by hand. (ANI)
