ISLAMABAD- Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah today supporting Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan's demand sought the resignation of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) members.
In a statement released here, Khursheed Shah said that all political parties should sit together to resolve issues adding that not only PTI but all parties demand electoral reforms. The opposition leader took former chairman ECP Fakhruddin G. Ibrahim to task and claimed that he could not hold fair and free elections. "The current body is not an election commission but a selection commission," he said.
Shah said that the ECP members should have resigned when their chief Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G Ebrahim vacated his post in July 2013. Ebrahim, one of the country's most respected jurists, oversaw the 2013 general elections of Pakistan. "The whole nation and not just Imran desires the overhaul of Pakistan's electoral system," Shah added.
