JUI demands non-political governors for next polls

KARACHI: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) Pakistan, Sindh, Secretary General, Khalid Mehmood Soomro, and other party leaders said on Saturday that fair and transparent elections are not possible in presence of what they called political governors in the country.

In a statement, JUI leaders said that there is need to bring neutral governors in the country so as to hold fair next general elections. The JUI leaders said that Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) was already vague to implement Supreme Court verdict about delimitations of the constituencies in Karachi as its attitude towards voter lists verification is not satisfactory. They said that bloodshed in Karachi is on peak level while sectarianism was also being fanned in Sindh.

“If government does not change its attitude, then there will be massive bloodshed in next general elections,” the religious leaders observed.
