Introducing e-voting machines to make election process credible: PM KhanAbdul Gh Lone 25 April 2021 0 COMMENTS
Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday that the main objective behind the formation of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was to bring powerful and corrupt people before the law.
The prime minister said this in a video message on the 25th foundation
day of his party. He said he came into politics to ensure the supremacy of law
in the country.
The youth played a cardinal role in PTI’s rise and acceptability
among the masses, according to PM Khan. The October 30, 2011 rally in Lahore
took him and his party to new heights of popularity. He said it led to the
party’s victory in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the 2013 elections, despite massive
rigging of polls.
The prime minister said he demanded the then government open
four constituencies, but these demands fell on deaf ears. Consequently, he
said, his party organized a 126-day-long sit-in in Islamabad, but no attention
was given to electoral reforms.
The PTI government is now working on introducing
internationally recognized electronic voting machines, he said.
These machines will make the election process credible and
everyone would accept the results, PM Khan added.
