PTI Demands Deployment of Army in Cantonment Board Elections

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has demanded the deployment of army during the elections of cantonment board across the country.

A letter written by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (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.

He said that the absence of electronic voting machines paved the way for rigging, adding that local political players could resort to rigging in elections ranging from fake votes to tempering with results. Our well-thought-out view is that the military should be assisted in holding free and fair elections.
