Elections rigging: Hamza Shahbaz demands to form parliamentary commission


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim league-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz on Sunday has demanded to constitute parliamentary commission to probe into alleged rigging in elections 2018.
Talking to media outside Punjab Assembly, Hamza said that he took oath as member of provincial assembly for the continuity of democracy.
He also lashed out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), saying that a disqualified person took independent candidates to Bani Gala for their meeting with Imran Khan.
It is to be mentioned here that PTI’s Usman Buzdar and PML-N’s Hamza Shahbaz are contesting for the post of Punjab CM.
In the House of 358, an aspirant requires 178 votes to become chief minister and House’s leader. PTI enjoys support of 186 MPAs [members of provincial assembly] whereas PML-N enjoys support of 162.
Three independent lawmakers and one MPA of Rah-e-Haq party will also cast their vote.
Usman Buzdar garnered 26,897 votes from PP-286 Taunsa Sharif and defeated independent candidate Khawaja Muhammad Nizamul Mehmood.
Hamza Shehbaz—son of PML-N’s president Shehbaz Sharif—had secured PA’s seat from constituency PP-146.
