If the elections were not fair, free and transparent, the masses would lose confidence in the entire electoral system

Lahore, June 20, 2018 (PPI-OT): Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the corrupt political leadership of the country did not seem to have any role in the future and if the elections were fair and transparent, new faces would be in a majority in the assemblies. Addressing the central leaders of the JI at Mansoora on Wednesday, he however added that if the elections were not fair, free and transparent, the masses would lose confidence in the entire electoral system. Sirajul Haq said that the system of proportionate representation was best suited for the country because of its socio-political conditions but the feudal lords, vaderas and wealthy people dominating the politics were afraid of that.

The JI chief said the need of the hour was to trust the collective wisdom of the masses and not to steal the public mandate. The masses, he said, did not want the plunderers to return to power with new faces and through new parties because these people were responsible for the present mess in the country. He said the parties claiming public support had never respected the public mandate as their leaders forgot public problems after returning to the assemblies. Sirajul Haq said that a strong democratic system was required to face globalization and added that none of the parties except the MMA had democracy worth the name nor any party had the agenda of public service and national development.

On the other hand, he said, the MMA had a clear mandate for national development and prosperity. He said that the mega city of Karachi was not getting drinking water while the entire country was facing prolonged load shedding. He said that in order to resolve the energy crisis and price hike, the masses would have to support the MMA instead of the failed parties and politicians. Sirajul Haq said that the solution of all socio-economic and political problems lay in the enforcement of the Nizam e Mustafa, and added that the foremost point on the MMA manifesto was the enforcement of the Shariah which was also the realization of the objective of the creation of Pakistan.
