ECP Rejects PTI’s Plea For Deployment Of Army During Cantonment Board Elections

ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has rejected plea of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for deployment of Pakistan Army during upcoming elections of Cantonment Board.

Election Commission has said that security arrangement have been finalized and Army is not required in presence of Police, Rangers and FC.

A letter written by PTI chief organizer Senator Saifullah Khan Niazi to the Election Commission said that sub-organizations from across the country are updating with the details of the ongoing election campaign for the Cantonment Board elections. Past experience has shown that elections held without assigning security to the military are subject to suspicion.
