ISLAMABAD- Politicians belonging to different parties have welcomed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s offer, of constituting a judicial commission, to investigate the alleged rigging in 2013 general elections.

Opposition leader Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah said all the political parties believe in the independence of the judiciary. He hoped that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan would also consider the proposal in order to steer the nation out of the prevailing confusion.

Dr. Farid Ahmed Paracha representing JI said that this initiative by the Prime Minister was a positive step in the right direction.

Senator Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo urged PTI chief Imran Khan to trust the higher judiciary and cancel his march. The PML-N government needs to complete its tenure to ensure political and economic stability in the country, he added.

Awami National Party leader Mian Iftikhar Hussain said the Prime Minister has given a positive message to the agitating parties.
