The PPP chairman claimed that the government was attempting to unilaterally passing the electoral reforms. He said that PPP will not accept the next election if the government is not ready to consider the reservations of the opposition and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

He was of the view that the next election would not be controversial if the legislation was passed with a consensus. He alleged that the government is forcedly passing the law for the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) despite the objections of the ECP.
