CEC Gilgit Baltistan instead of taking action against the Law breakers belonging to the Federal Government is asking the opposition to provide proofs against the Law breakers.

17th November 2020

PRESS STATEMENT

The Incharge of Central Election Cell of Pakistan Peoples Parry Senator Taj Haider said in a Press Statement that the Honorable Chief Election Commissioner Gilgit Baltistan instead of taking action against the Law breakers belonging to the Federal Government is asking the opposition to provide proofs against the Law breakers. This attitude is enough proof of the partial conduct of the honorable CEC himself.

Shall we give proof of the open and blatant violation of electoral law by Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs for running full-fledged campaign for his Party and making promises of development works to the electorate? Shall we give proof of his making appointments of a candidate as his advisor a week ahead of the polling day? Shall we give proof of the Prime Minister standing in Gilgit on a national day and attacking the opposition in a political speech in which he also made a promise of granting provincial status to Gilgit Baltistan? Shall we give proofs of many ministers and advisors addressing public meetings even after the time for campaigning had ended? Shall we give proofs of disappearance of ballot boxes and replacing genuine forms 45 with fake forms 45? Such open crimes are punished with disqualification of Law breaker, under the Law.

Senator Taj Haider said that had any action been taken by the Chief Election Commissioner on our complaints of blatant pre-poll rigging, the polling day rigging and the post poling rigging would have not taken place.

The gross lapses on the part of the CEC have resulted in the open theft of the mandate of the people. One should not ignore that the people of Gilgit Baltistan have been waiting for a fair deal for the last 70 years. It was their forefathers who won their independence through armed struggle. One can rest assured that the peaceful struggle of the people of the area will ultimately result in the restoration of their mandate.

The PPP candidate, Jamil Ahmed was leading by 400 votes last night in the final count but in the morning he was shown as trailing by 2 votes.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto also joined the protest and addressed the crowd gathered there. In his fiery speech hesaid that the PPP candidates were pressurized to leave the party and join the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf but each and every one of them remained steadfast with the party except one. He said that when the authorities witnessed the support for PPP by the people of GB from Siachen to Gilgit, they got worried. The election commission started supporting the illegal acts of the PTI ministers. He said that so much so that the chief election commissioner went to Islamabad and held a press conference in Islamabad against opposition instead of stopping government ministers from illegal acts. Even the Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Gilgit.

Chairman PPP said that three seats were clearly snatched from the PPP but warned that no one will be allowed to do so. He said that PPP will continue its protest at every place where rigging has occurred. We will not allow the puppet, the selected and the selectors to steal the elections. The selectors knew that PTI does not exist in Gilgit Baltistan. Everyone knows that the people of GB are with the PPP.

Chairman Bilawal said that he is under pressure by the people and warned the powers to be, not to push him to the extent that he takes extreme measures.

Bilawal cancels his flight back to Islamabad, decides to stay with people of GB

Islamabad/Gilgit, 16 November 2020: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has cancelled his return flight to Islamabad and decided to participate in the protest against the rigging in the Gilgit Baltistan Elections in Gilgit

Chairman PPP while addressing the press conference gave examples of rigging in the elections. He said that no polling was conducted in GB-13 constituency in the garb of rough weather. He demanded re-election in constituency GB-13.

He said that women were the disfranchised and not allowed to vote in constituency GB-18. So much so that the PPP candidate, Sadia Danish could not file her nomination papers in her constituency. Not allowing women to vote is denial of their freedom to vote and there should be re-election in GB18 as well.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that in constituency GB-21 ballot boxes were stolen. How the election commission can ignore this incident, he asked. There is no status or value of this election.

Sectarianism was spread in several constituencies to defeat PPP candidates. We will not allow spreading sectairinism and dividing and rule policy just to benefit government’s favorite candidates. Similar sectarianism was spread in constituency GB-8. He demanded re-election in all those constituencies where sectarianism benefited government supported candidates.

In the constituency GB-2 Jamil Ahmad won the elections but forcibly rigged counting against him so he lost just by 2 votes. The PPP will not accept this reversal of result. Forms 45 are not matching in this constituency.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PPP has all the options and will exhaust every one of them. We will go to courts and also to the election commission. Chief election commissioners was biased that he addressed a press conference against opposition.

Chairman PPP said that the ministers violated the verdict of the court as well. When a prime minister can be sent home on contempt of court then why not the ministers of PTI government, he asked. He said that the ministers bribed people to vote for government candidates. They also announced projects during their illegal campaign. We are going to courts after collecting all the evidences of rigging. He said that he has cancelled his flight to Islamabad and will participate in the protest in Gilgit against the rigging. He said that these results are a joke and the people of GB will not accept them. They were so ill prepared that they do not even have a candidate of chief minister whereas he has announced his nomination for chief minister which is Advocate Amjad Hussain. He said that he is preparing to form government in GB. He hoped that by the morning he will be given all the seats back which were stolen from the people of GB. He said the rights of the people are being snatched and his party will protest till the votes are protected. He also said that he is aware that how two institutions were deciding these rigging sitting together. They were working against the PPP in that room. He criticised those journalists who were saying that he has come to GB after striking a deal. He said that his party was not given level playing field. We will not be satisfied by any lollipop and are preparing to form the government in GB.
