ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar presented the agreement between the federal government and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) regarding the Judicial Commission (JC) report in the National Assembly on Monday.

Dar said that the PTI was not abiding to its agreement as according to the written contract, it is stated that if the elections are found to be transparent and fair, then the PTI will take back all its allegations of rigging.

The minister went on to say that the Inquiry Commission was created in consensus with all political parties including the PTI.

Dar further said, “If the verdict of the JC turned out to be against the PML-N then we will conduct re-elections.”

The finance minister also added that the PTI had endorsed the agreement regarding the Inquiry Commission.

Earlier reports had indicated that the PML-N government would likely present the judicial commission report in Parliament today, which rejected claims by the PTI that the 2013 general elections were rigged.

The three-judge commission released its final report last week, saying the polls were largely fair and in accordance with the law.

Prior to the NA session, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired a high-level meeting to discuss the country’s political situation and the agenda for the session.

Sources said the government’s strategy following the judicial commission’s inquiry report was also discussed during the meeting.
