RAWALPINDI: Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed remarked on Sunday that the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar should take notice of election being delayed in NA-60 following Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi’s sentence.
“Hanif Abbasi has been sentenced in a contraband smuggling case,” remarked Rasheed while addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi.
The Election Commission of Pakistan has taken an unconstitutional step after delaying the election in NA-160, he claimed.
It would be understandable if the election was being postponed due to firing incident or death of candidate in the constituency, he said, adding that a conspiracy has been hatched to postpone the election in one constituency.
ECP has to take a decision with respect to the law and not opinions shared on media, said Rasheed.
