Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that those elected to the Senate through power of wealth would only work for their personal ends.

Talking to the media at Chief Minister House, Peshawar during his meetings with the assembly members, he deplored that the Election Commission had so far not evolved a system for transparent elections. He was sure that the opponents won’t find any “Mir Ja’fer” (traitor) in the Khyber P. ruling alliance and the MPAs would bury the old, rotten politics once for all.

He urged the members of the assemblies to exercise their vote freely and according to the call of their conscience and added that the nation would hold strict accountability of those selling their conscience.

The JI chief said there had been worst form of rigging in the 2013 elections that was still resounding in the minds of the public and it remained the bone of contention between the government and the opposition.

He said the tomorrow election would be the test of the assembly members and whoever tried to sell his conscience would lose the confidence of the public.

Sirajul Haq said that status and respect in the world and the hereafter would be on the basis of faith, and the assembly members should nominate their representatives keeping in view the merit and competence of all the candidates in the run.
