JI asks ECP to monitor intra-lections of political parties


Karachi: Jamaat e Islami (JI) has asked the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to device a mechanism for supervising the intra-elections of the registered political parties of Pakistan and bar the political parties that are not willing to hold their intra-elections.

JI Amir Senator Sirajul Haq said that it is a hard-luck of Pakistan that its many political parties have become hereditary dynasties. He said their leaders are not willing to hold the intra-parties elections, or sham intra-party elections are held in which the same leaders are ‘elected unopposed’. He said this farce should be ended for good and the Election Commission of Pakistan must form a mechanism for holding and supervising these intra-elections and it should ban the political parties from taking part in general or local bodies’ elections if they have not carried out their intra-party polls in free and fair manner.

Addressing a ‘meet the press’ program of Karachi Press Club (KPC), he said we need to change out political values and political culture for the sake of our coming generations. He said we should stop the politics of Right and Left and instead start a principled politics of Wright and Wrong.
