JI, PTI-backed members not to take oath: Hafiz Naeem


KARACHI: Opposition parties in Sindh announced to hold a joint protest outside the provincial assembly during the inaugural session against what they called historical rigging in the General Elections 2024, ARY News reported.

The leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fzal (JUI-F) announced to protest in a joint press conference.

PTI Sindh President Haleem Adil Sheikh said that the elections were rigged in different ways in Karachi, Hyderabad, Larkana, and Sukkur.

“There will be no talks with the Pakistan People s Party and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan as both the parties are beneficiaries of the rigging,” Haleem Adil Sheikh added.

JI Karachi Ameer Hafiz Naeemur Rehman said that newly elected members of his party as well as the PTI would not take oath in the inaugural session as a protest.

He said that the PPP and MQM-P were awarded a fake mandate of the province. “We will be expanding our protest,” Hafiz Naeemur Rehman said.

JUI-F leader Rashid Soomro said that they would be holding a protest headed by the GDA leadership. “If the opposition parties are denied to hold peaceful protest, we will not be responsible for any mishap,” Rashid Soomro.

GDA s Safdar Abbasi termed the General Elections 2024 as the most rigged polls in the country s history. He said that opposition parties would never accept the rigged results.

Safdar Abbasi also questioned the role of caretaker setup in Sindh, alleging interim Chief Minster Justice (retd) Maqbool Baqar to support the PPP.
