ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday called for resignations of four members of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the NADRA boss following the Election Tribunal’s NA-122 verdict.

“ECP members which were part of general elections 2013, have no longer moral and legal authority to remain in the office,” Khan said while addressing a press conference following a meeting of the PTI’s advisory committee.

Khan added that Justice Kazim Ali Malik in the NA-122 verdict said that he never asked for a supplementary report presented by the NADRA chief.

“We demand immediate resignation of NADRA Chairman for covering up NA-122 rigging,” the PTI chairman said.

“If the people of Pakistan do not get justice through due process, then the only way to get justice is by demanding it on the streets,” he asserted.

Criticising the ruling PML-N, he said that the party has old habit of maligning Pakistan army.

Replying a query, Imran said MQM itself would decide whether they want to stay in the assemblies or not, adding that PTI wants law to take its course.
