There was no provision for postponement of the elections in the constitution: Liaqat Baloch

Lahore, June 01, 2018 (PPI-OT): Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, who is also Secretary General of the MMA, has said that the Balochistan Assembly resolution and the letter of the ex-Chief Minister of Khyber P. for delay in the elections were unconstitutional as there was no provision for postponement of the elections in the constitution. Addressing an Awami Iftar programme in Faisalabad, he said that the electoral process would be derailed by any unconstitutional step.

The JI Secretary General said that the consensus in the centre and Sindh for the care taker set up was appreciable and said that the parliamentary committees should complete their job within time. Liaqat Baloch said that during the last seventy years, hidden forces had always been active at election times and doubts and confusion were created. However, he said that the democratic forces and political parties and leaders should firmly stick to the principle of timely elections. He said that the MMA would continue its struggle in this direction.

He further said that the politics of the Punjab province had been ruined by the feudal lords, so called electable and the lust for power and money of those changing political loyalties. He said the MMA would unite all religious parties and Islam loving and patriotic voters against the secular elements opposing the Islamic laws especially the faith in the Khatme Nubuwwat. He was confident that the religious vote would not be divided in the forthcoming elections.
