    Rigging reports in PTIís intra-party elections

    LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insafís Election Commission has taken an exception to irregularities in the party membership campaign, including fake membership by workers and leaders by using a number of mobile SIMs.

    An election commission meeting, chaired by Chief Election Commissioner Tasneem Noorani, at chairmanís secretariat on Saturday, said any irregularity or ďriggingĒ would not be tolerated in the intra-party elections.

    Mr Noorani said the commission was receiving complaints that people were using up to five SIMs on one identity card to create five votes. He said the commission was preparing a list of voters and would verify independently in the light of the Election Commission of Pakistanís votersí list.

    He said the new membersí verification would also be made through different ways, including direct calls.

    ďThose numbers found switched off continuously would be blocked,Ē Mr Noorani said and added that the commission was also devising different technical ways to check the veracity of the membership.

    Mr Noorani said the commission had decided that those found guilty of making fake members would facing punishments, including ineligibility to contest the intra-party election, refusal of party ticket for elections or termination of party membership.

    PTI Punjab Election Commissioner retired Col Ijaz Minhas and other members were present on the occasion.

    There needs to be a system in place, there is no example in Pakistan to follow, Imran has indeed started this trend in Pakistan but all of this requires money and correct people at key positions and politics within party don't let Imran to make moves freely.

    But now that he is in, he should continue, there is no looking back, Insha-Allah.

    He can move forward very well without the people who are very close to him, but they are the source of money the party needs to run on, and yes they are the source of traditional vote too, so this is how it is, this is democracy and democracy isn't a perfect system either, it is good, better than imperialism or dictatorship but not perfect.
