QUETTA: Supporters of the Balochistan National Party (Mengal), Jamiat Ulema Islam-Ideological, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat held a sit-in outside the election commission offices on Sunday in protest against the alleged rigging in elections.

Leaders alleged that rigging had been carried out on a large scale and results had been changed at the polling stations.

Agha Hasan Baloch, Maulana Abdul Qadir Luni, Ahmed Nawaz Baloch, Qasim Suri, Maulana Mahmoodul and Maulana Kabir Shakir said that the election commission had failed to conduct the polls in a free and fair manner.

They added that ‘hidden hands’ had played an active role in ensuring the victory of some candidates.

They called upon the election commission to order re-voting at the polling stations where rigging had been carried out.
