ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said that former Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry deserves to be booked under Article 6 of the constitution for his alleged role in poll rigging, Pakistan Tribune reported.
Talking to journalists on his arrival from Saudi Arabia after performing Umrah, PTI Chairman went on to predict that 2015 might become election year if a powerful and independent “Judicial Commission” is formed and tasked to probe alleged poll rigging in 2013 general elections.
Giving rarest of rare exception to the government, Imran claimed that former Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and Justice (retd) Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday orchestrated systematic electoral rigging through returning officers (ROs).
“We will prove that Iftikhar Chaudhry and Ramday controlled returning officers,” the PTI chief said.
Imran Khan once again categorically stated that his party wouldn’t return to National and provincial assemblies unless a judicial commission declares 2013 general elections as free and fair.
“We will go to assemblies if the judicial commission declares the election legitimate,” Imran said.
In the same vein, he also warned that any member who violates party policy will be ousted from the PTI.
PTI Chairman further added that his party was giving time to the government after the Peshawar tragedy. However, he warned that government should not remain in any misgiving as PTI restart agitation against rigging in elections if the judicial commission is not formed as they have the street power.
