Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan has filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against the Sindh High Court’s decision on delimitation and electoral reforms.
The Sindh High Court had on June 24 rejected the MQM’s petition seeking delimitation and electoral reforms.
However, the MQM approached the Supreme Court to review the decision.
The petition filed by MQM Pakistan convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and others said that transparent elections are not possible in Sindh without electoral reforms. MQM is a strong representative party of urban areas of Sindh. The government machinery has been used indiscriminately. The administration, the police and the lower staff of the Election Commission were also involved in the fraud.
The petition filed by the MQM said that the ballot boxes were snatched and taken to an unknown location. Fake votes cast.
In addition, the petition seeks a restraining order on the second phase of local body elections in Sindh.
According to sources, Sindh government, secretaries local government, election commission and others have been made parties in the petition.
