During the last few days, the print and electronic media has been airing news about the scrutiny of the nomination papers of prospective candidates. Many of the people stated that Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) now has become very strong and it will not be possible for every candidate to get a clean chit.

Initially, Faisal Saleh Hayat, Ayaz Amir and Jamshed Dasti’s nomination papers were rejected, but later they were accepted. It is true that some of the contestants’ papers have been rejected, but the big fish and crocodiles are still out and hunting.

This clearly proves that the ECP and the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim, have failed badly at implementing Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution of Pakistan.
