Mr. Khush Dil Khan, Vice-Chairman, Pakistan Bar Council and Syed Qalb-i-Hassan, Former President, Supreme Court Bar Association and sitting Member of the Pakistan Bar Council, have issued the following statement:

“We highly appreciate the Election Commission of Pakistan for playing its Constitutional role with neutrality in respect of Daska By-election and with regard to recent Senate Election by sticking to the Principle of secret Ballot as mandated by the Constitution, without submitting to Government pressure.

We also strongly condemn the incumbent Federal Government for pressurizing the Election Commission of Pakistan and demanding its resignation for not scumbing to Government undue pressure, and instead to performing its role strictly in accordance with the Constitution.”
