ANP informs CEC about political transfers and postings, code of conduct violations
Mian Iftikhar Hussain says deputy commissioners are forcing people to change their loyalties
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News/Web Desk) – Seasoned politician and ANP leader Mian Iftikhar Hussain said on Monday they had informed Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja about the repeated code of conduct violations in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, saying any continuation of the ongoing practices would be considered pre-poll rigging.
He was speaking to reporters after a meeting with the chief election commissioner (CEC) on a day which also saw the MQM presenting their case about alleged injustices in the new delimitations and the support being extended to the PPP by the caretaker government in Sindh.
Hussain said his party had especially pointed to the transfer and posting of district administration officers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which, according to him, were politically-motivated and being carried out under a special agenda.
The deputy commissioners were pressing politicians for joining the particular parties to get favourable transfers and postings, he alleged.
Demanding posting of impartial officials, he said the ANP wanted free and fair polls according the schedule announced by the ECP (Election Commission of Pakistan).
