PTI demands LB polls under army supervision


Karachi: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh has expressed serious apprehensions over transparency of upcoming local bodies’ elections in the province and demanded to hold the same under army supervision.

Talking to PPI on Thursday, Dawa Khan Saber, provincial spokesman of PTI, said that his party had serious reservations over new LG Act, delimitations and interference of Sindh government in the election process and believed that the poll would not be free unless it was not conducted under the army control.

Khan said that despite all reservations, PTI would not opt to boycott the polls. “Being a democratic party, PTI will go to the people and will not leave ground empty for anyone,” he added.

He said that PTI and Jumaat-e-Islami (JI) would support each other in the elections and a formula for this had been finalized, adding that some nationalist parties in interior Sindh had also contacted PTI for alliance.

“PTI has given authority to all it district organizations to make alliance with any likeminded party where it is necessary.”
