QUETTA: Former Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani, the leader of Jamiat ul Ulema-e-Islam F and Chief of Sarawan, expressed apprehensions about the electoral process, emphasizing the need to ensure the sanctity of the vote and prevent any undue interference.
Raisani expressed concern over the credibility of the electoral process, echoing sentiments about past elections in 2018. He urged against repeating the mistakes of the past and stressed that an election should remain just that—an election, devoid of any interference or manipulation.
No Selection Should Be Promoted
“We are witnessing a strong push for selection,” remarked Raisani, underlining the importance of intelligent people not favoring any form of selection in the electoral process. He cautioned against violating the sanctity of the ballot paper and called on the Election Commission, the people, and the caretaker government to avoid any underhanded tactics.
“We request the people to check and choose the best representatives for themselves,” Raisani urged, emphasizing the vital role that citizens play in preventing fraud during elections. He acknowledged that political issues are at the forefront of the nation’s challenges, closely followed by economic concerns.
