KARACHI: The Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan have raised questions over the credibility of vote counting process, alleging that their polling agents have been thrown out and are not being handed over the final certified results.
The PSP’s central leader, Raza Haroon, in an unscheduled media talk, alleged that the party’s polling agents have been told by the officials to collect the results from returning officers.
“We have not seen whatever is happening. In the past we have seen such referendums not election,” the PSP leader sarcastically remarked. “Its the right of polling agents to receive election results.”
The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, the arch-rival of the PSP, raised the same concerns in a media talk called on an emergency notice.
“The MQM-P’s representatives were thrown out from NA-249’s Salahuddin school polling station 89, and from a polling station in Gulzar-e-Hijri Metroville,” alleged party’s senior leader Faisal Subzwari.
“We reserve the right to protest if we are not handed over final results of the polling stations from the election commission staffers,” he added.
