ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) on Saturday announced it will present a white paper against the government’s performance over the last three years — which aims to “expose its corruption, prejudiced accountability, and rigging in the elections”.
“The evidence is being gathered and a white paper will be presented from the PDM’s platform to [expose] the government before the people,” PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said while addressing a press conference.
Abbasi’s press conference came after the Opposition alliance’s steering committee held a meeting which mulled over recommendations presented during an August 11 meeting in Islamabad.
“The reason behind the incumbent government’s failures is the rigging of the 2018 general elections, and till the time this country’s affairs are not in line with the Constitution, the problems of the people cannot be resolved,” the former prime minister said.
“It is crystal clear that democracy cannot thrive in Pakistan till the elections are not transparent and held without interference,” he added.
