ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday asked the ruling party and its ministers to stop mud-slinging against the state institutions.
On Prime Minister Imran Khan’s criticizing the institution, a day ago, for not holding an open ballot elections in the Senate, the ECP said that the process should have been approved by the parliament.
“The ECP’s job is to uphold and follow the laws and not to legislate them. Every political party and person should accept the defeat and if they have any difference, they can come up with the evidence,” it said.
The ECP said that it could not ignore the law and constitution for happiness of someone. If someone had an objection on the government institution’s decision, then he should adopt a constitutional procedure and let them work independently.
