The grand opposition alliance on Thursday decided to move a resolution in the parliament against the alleged rigging in last month’s general elections in which Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) gained majority.

Protest rallies were carried out on the second consecutive day in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Quetta in which the protesters demanded the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) to step down from his post.

In Karachi, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) and Awami National Party (ANP) staged a sit-in outside Election Commission office. A protest was also organised in front of the ECP office in Peshawar, while a rally was organised by the grand opposition alliance from Railway Station to ECP office in Quetta.

PPP leader and former leader of opposition in Natoinal Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah had hinted at forming a parliamentary commission over the alleged rigging in July 25 general elections. Various opposition parties have agreed on the formation of parliamentary commission over alleged rigging after detailed consultation.

According to the new strategy, the grand opposition alliance has decided to move resolutions in the parliament against alleged rigging in which an investigation would be demanded from the Senate and National Assembly. The alliance will also show strong power for the passage of resolutions.
