PDM’s Latest Move: Government Files References Against Imran Khan and Saqib Nisar

PDM Government Files References Against Imran Khan and Saqib Nisar

In recent developments, the government has filed a reference against former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Saqib Nisar in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). This reference was filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Atta Tarar and Malik Muhammad Ahmed Khan under the Election Act 2017 and Article 218 (3). The reference alleges moral and financial corruption regarding the sale of tickets for the Punjab assembly and names several PTI leaders as respondents, including Asad Umar, Ejaz Chaudhry, Mian Aziz, Abuzar, and Najam Saqib, who is the son of Saqib Nisar.

The reference includes an audio leak of Najam Saqib, which allegedly proves Saqib Nisar’s involvement in the deal to sell PTI’s tickets. The leaked call involved Abuzar, who is said to have received a ticket from PTI, and action should be taken against them. Furthermore, the reference claims that Saqib Nisar, Ejaz Chaudhry, and Asad Umar acted as facilitators and urged the ECP to take action, including dismissing Imran Khan as the party’s chairman.

The PTI senior vice president Fawad Chaudhry had rejected the claims of “bribery,” saying the internal investigation into audio leaks of Najam Saqib allegedly demanding a cut in a PTI ticket for the PP-137 deal had found the allegation false. Chaudhry had taken to Twitter, saying, “The allegation has been found false after investigation. We request the court to expose real faces behind these leaks.”

The reference filed by PML-N leaders is a significant development in Pakistani politics. The allegations of corruption and disregard for the constitution and law by one of Pakistan’s largest political parties are significant and need to be investigated thoroughly. It is the responsibility of the ECP to ensure that the electoral process is fair and transparent.

At the heart of this reference is the issue of transparency and accountability. Elections are the cornerstone of any democracy, and they must be free and fair. The allegations of corruption and malpractice cast a shadow over the entire electoral process and undermine people’s trust in their democratic institutions.

The reference filed by PML-N leaders against Imran Khan and Saqib Nisar cites the Election Act 2017 and Article 218 (3) as grounds for the complaint. The Election Act 2017 lays out the legal framework for conducting elections in Pakistan and outlines the rules for political parties, candidates, and the ECP. Article 218 (3) of the Constitution of Pakistan gives the ECP the power to hold free and fair elections.

The reference filed by PML-N leaders against Imran Khan and Saqib Nisar is a reminder that no one is above the law, and everyone must be held accountable for their actions. The ECP must investigate these allegations thoroughly and take appropriate action if any wrongdoing is found. It is crucial to restore public confidence in the electoral process and ensure that the voice of the people is heard loud and clear.
