A spokesman for the Election Commission said: “We do not know Mr. X, Y or Z. Our job is to hold transparent and fair elections.
A spokesman for the Election Commission said in a statement that there was no need for the Chief Election Commissioner to meet Hamza Shahbaz and Maryam Nawaz in secret as politicians themselves come to meet the Chief Election Commissioner.
“It’s very easy to make accusations, but if there is evidence, bring it forward,” he said. The Election Commission will continue to play its constitutional role without coming under pressure. We will ensure transparent elections in Punjab by-elections.
“We do not know any Mr X, Y or Z and our job is to hold transparent, fair elections,” the spokesman said. The Election Commission will continue to play its constitutional role without any fear. The ECP directed the DROs and ROs to remain vigilant for the by-elections and said that security agencies have been asked to play their effective role for peaceful polling.
