Senate polls: Imran accuses PPP of horse-trading in KP | Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Chairman Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan Saturday claimed that the horse trade in the Senate elections allowed the Pakistan People's Party to win 2 seats from Province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
"The Senate elections again witnessed the shameful trade of horses, where IPA bought and sold their votes, as the country witnessed this sale of its" chosen "people at a high price," Khan said in his tweet after surveys.
"This shows the moral decline of our political class. What is the Western democracy doing such a sale? "
He said that it was for this reason that his party presented alternative formats of direct elections or elections on party lists.
"We warned that the sale of votes will always exist differently," said the head of the PTI, regretting the rejection of his proposals by the election committee and the committee of the entire Senate.
He noted that the PPP won 2 places from the KP, where he has only 7 IPA, saying: "This kind of selective farce raises some serious ethical issues."
Khan further said that the money played in the Senate elections is the main reason why the perception of the public has strengthened, that people come to politics to enrich themselves, rather than serve the people.
"Senate elections not only devalued the Senate, but the entire political class," he added.
