PTI alleges ‘unprecedented’ rigging in general election

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has alleged that “unprecedented rigging” has been committed in Lahore. It has been unearthed during verification process by the election tribunal when it opened the record of only 6 polling stations of PP-147, one of the two provincial constituencies falling under NA-122 from where PTI Chairman Imran Khan contested the May 11, 2013 elections against PML-N’s Ayaz Sadiq. According to preliminary findings, thumbprint verification and pre-scanning report were shocking, a PTI release issued on Tuesday claimed. The release stated that instead of required six bags, seven bags were discovered for six polling stations under scrutiny and over 300 votes cast in the bags had no signatures or stamps of presiding officers. Similarly, in three or four bags, there were no electoral lists while in the remaining three or four bags there were no counterfoils. The thumbprint verification has yet to take place, the release added.
