Reforms will be beneficial if establishment kept away from electoral process: Bilawal

KARACHI (92 News) – Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Monday that the electoral reforms will only be beneficial if the establishment kept away from the electoral process.

Addressing a press conference along with other party leaders, the PPP chairman said that it would be better if Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) carries out electoral reforms. He expressed readiness to sit with the government for electoral reforms but said no one takes government seriously.

"Electoral reform requires legislation, but it would be strange to sit down with a fraudster and stop fraud. Imran Khan's dissolution of the assembly and the resignation of PML-N are both on the same page. Vote will not be honoured without respecting Parliament."

Bilawal Bhutto accused the PML-N of not challenging the PTI government in Punjab and said the party hasn’t done so because of its political interests. He also said that CM Usman Buzdar hasn’t faced any problems in getting budgets approved in the assembly in the last three years. "It feels like there is an alliance of the PML-N and the PTI in Punjab," he added.

Bilawal’s remarks came two days after Prime Minister Imran Khan invited the opposition to sit with the government to discuss election reforms.
