RAWALPINDI: The Returning Officers (ROs) and District Returning Officers (DROs) of Rawalpindi have rejected the rigging allegations levelled by the ex-Rawalpindi commissioner Liaquat Chattha.

The ROs and DROs were addressing a joint press conference along with the newly appointed Commissioner Rawalpindi, Saif Anwar.

The DROs in a presser urged the authorities for a thorough inquiry into the allegations raised by the former Commissioner, Liaqat Ali Chattha.

During the press conference, the DROs rejected all the rigging allegations and asserted that there was no external pressure or ‘interference’ during the general election of 2024.

In adherence to ECP’s regulations and guidelines, the DROs clarified that the elections were conducted by the Election Act.

Commissioner Saif said the allegations of Chattha were false and the elections in the Rawalpindi division were held in a transparent manner. 

Chattha's revelation about alleged rigging in the elections on Saturday sent shock waves across the country. 

Addressing a press conference the Rawalpindi commissioner surrendered to police saying “I accept responsibility for rigging the election 2024”.

Liaqat Ali Chattha admitted that the rigging took place in the election and candidates who were leading in their constituencies with over 70,000 votes were converted to losers with the help of fake seals under his watch.

He also apologized to his subordinates for compelling them to rig elections saying that they were crying when they were directed to carry out the rigging.
