ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday lashed out at the Opposition, claiming that money was used to influence not only the Islamabad seat’s results in the Senate elections but also in seats for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa elections for the upper house.
This was said by the prime minister during a meeting of the PTI where the premier was addressing party members, urging them to push the government’s narrative on the Senate elections.
The PTI chairperson said that his party’s senators were already receiving offers to sell their votes for the upcoming Senate elections.
“I know very well which senator was offered what,” said the prime minister.
The premier continued his criticism of the Election Commission of Pakistan, saying that its role had been controversial in the recent Senate polls.
PM Imran Khan lashed out at PDM’s joint candidate for the post of Senate chairman, former premier Yousaf Raza Gilani, adding that the PPP leader had “destroyed [the concept of] morality [in politics] and the entire nation is watching his actions”.
