ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) core committee Monday warned the people will resist if their mandate is stolen in elections.

In its meeting, the core committee emphasised that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), in consultation with the President under the supervision of the Supreme Court, has fixed February 8 as the date for the general elections.

The party said fair elections are the basic requirements for supremacy of the Constitution, rule of law, restoration and stability of democracy and peaceful transition of power, it noted.

The party alleged open interference of the state institutions in politics against the constitution and law is causing the worst kind of deterioration in the electoral environment while the “brutal campaign of atrocities and revenge” against the party leaders and workers of PTI is going on without any fear and consideration of the law.

The Supreme Court, the party argued, should take suo motu cognizance of what it alleged the discriminatory state actions against the PTI and ensure equal opportunities for all parties to participate in the elections.

The core committee meeting also discussed in detail the strategy of scrutinizing candidates in the light of the principled decision to participate in the elections.
