Siraj for dialogue on electoral reforms

LAHORE – Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has called for dialogues among political parties for electoral reforms, saying the system of proportional representation is the best option to strengthen democracy in the country. “The present system is tailored to serve the vested interests of the elite class ruling over the country for decades,” he said while presiding over a meeting of party’s central and provincial parliamentary boards at Mansoora on Wednesday. Meeting discussed different suggestions for the next elections. “We believe the country could not go ahead without comprehensive electoral reforms. The JI has prepared a package of electoral reforms and shared it with the political parties. We are waiting for their response on it,” Siraj said. He also highlighted the need of democracy within the political parties, saying the dynastic politics and one-man-show in political parties were not good omen for democracy. He criticized the PTI for not addressing the gross root problems of the country, saying the inflation and unemployment were the major issues.
