ISLAMABAD - As the Judicial Commission, headed by the chief justice of Pakistan, will start its first public hearing from April 16 to probe allegations of rigging in the last general elections, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has geared up its efforts to collect evidences in this regard.

PTI has started consultative process to collect all proofs of rigging so that they could be submitted to the commission. For this purpose, PTI Chairman Imran Khan held a meeting in Islamabad, attended by senior party leaders, at which he tasked the party leaders to collect the proofs of rigging and submit them before the JC within five days.

Rizwan Chaudhry, an office bearer of PTI Media Cell, confirmed that a meeting was held for this purpose. The PTI leadership directed all the party lawmakers, candidates in the last elections and workers to collect all proofs of rigging, including videos, mobile phone clips and fake ballot papers, in next three days.

To coordinate all these efforts, PTI Saturday constituted an eight-member judicial commission task force, headed by senior party stalwart Ishaq Khan Khakwani to specifically deal with all the matters regarding the commission. Khakwani has been appointed as the task force coordinator.

Other members of the task force are MNA Dr Arif Alvi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) President Azam Swati, Punjab President Ejaz Chaudhry, Shoaib Siddiqui from Lahore and three party lawyers – Furrukh Dall, Qaiser Abbas and Anees Hashmi.

A notification, issued here on Saturday by PTI Secretary General Jehangir Khan Tareen, says, “In consultation with the party chairman, a task force has been constituted with immediate effect to deal with all the matters related to the Judicial Commission formed to probe the general elections 2013 rigging.”

The PTI secretary general, in a letter, on Friday asked National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) to submit all its analysis reports on the 2013 general elections to the commission.
