Imran khan first meeting with CEC today

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan will meet Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) retired Justice Sardar Mohammad Raza Khan for the first time on Monday (today) to inform him about his party’s concerns about alleged manipulation in the 2013 general elections.

It is likely that the PTI chief will also talk to journalist after the meeting, the PTI official announcement said.

This will be the first meeting between the PTI leader and Justice Raza Khan after the latter’s appointment as CEC in December last year.

Imran would raise the issue of alleged rigging in the general elections, with particular reference to four constituencies of the National Assembly results of which were not accepted by the PTI after the elections.

One of these constituencies is NA-122 from where Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq had defeated Imran Khan.

The meeting is taking place two days after an election tribunal in Lahore rejected Imran Khan’s plea for action against an inquiry commission that inspected the record of election in NA-122. The PTI chief had sought re-inspection of record of certain polling stations in the constituency.
