ISLAMABAD: Secretary of Election Commission, Ishtiaq Ahmed, on Sunday congratulated the nation on the successful completion of polls.

According to the ECP secretary, success in the polls was not of any political party, but of democracy, adding that the first phase of the electoral process had been completed peacefully.

Ahmed said 122 results of provincial assemblies had been received, but few results were still pending from the presiding officers of some constituencies.

Moreover, Ishtiaq said the delay in announcing results was on account of following the legal procedure, adding that no changes would be allowed in the final results.

In another statement, he said no notification would be issued without details of election expenses.

Ishtiaq, however, admitted that the nation was in doubt over the transparency of elections.
