KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Faisal Sabzwari on Wednesday expressed apprehensions on the results of general elections 2018 saying that the results were being written on plain paper rather than Form 45, ARY News reported.
“Polling agents of about four to five constituencies have complained of irregularities,” he said while talking to media amid announcements of unconfirmed and unofficial results of different polling stations.
Faisal said his party was told that verified results could not be given.
“Deputy Returning Officers and Presiding Officers are refusing to give official results on Form 45 as per ECP rules in NA-253, NA-256, NA-226, NA-227, NA-239. Officials have thrown out our polling agents from different polling stations of NA-243 and NA-249,” he wrote on his Twitter account.
He said they reserved the right to stage sit-in protest on the polling stations where polling officials would not give result on Form 45.
The MQM-P leader also declared delimitation as a result of provisional census as pre-poll rigging.
This is the mockery of Rules by Election Commission itself. Rules dictate that ECP officials are bound to provide results on Form 45, instead almost ALL of them in Khi & Hyderabad are insisting of giving us results on Plain Paper like this pic.twitter.com/jxcCdhi7PL
