Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Senator Mushtaq Ahmed has demanded that Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja resign from his post as he didn’t fulfil his responsibility to conduct free and fair elections in the country.

While addressing the senate, he said that the February 8 elections were fake and that they will not accept the fake government as the result of these rigged elections.

Senator Mushtaq Ahmed then accused the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) of committing treason and suggested that the electoral body should apologise to the nation for its actions.


“Legal proceeding should be carried out against the CEC under Article 6 of the constitution, for the ECP was given Rs 50 billion from the national exchequer but it failed to hold transparent polls,” he alleged.

The JI senator also said that the money wasted in the name of elections should be returned and a case should be lodged against CEC Sikandar Sultan Raja.
