ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said his party is willing to conduct re-election in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa under army supervision if it is proved that local government elections held in the province were not fair.

“We are willing to hold re-elections in all the councils held alleged to rigging,” Khan told journalists in Islamabad.

He said the local government polls held in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have no precedent in history. The polls were largest ever held in Pakistan.

Khan said 84,000 candidates contested in the polls and 41,000 won the seats. He said all political parties joined together against his party in the LB elections.

He further remarked the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is responsible for conducting polls and not the provincial government.

To a question, the PTI chief said Jamat-e-Islami s claim of electoral frauds in the local body elections is disappointing.
