Islamabad, January 30, 2013 (PPI-OT): It has been repeatedly reported in some print and electronic media that during the “No Confidence Motion” against the Speaker of Provincial Assembly, Balochistan, the principle of secrecy was seriously violated as several MPAs were showing their votes openly. Some voices were raised blaming the ECP for its omission to step in to stop the alleged rot and proceedings.
It is clarified that the ECP has nothing to do with the conduct/ proceedings of the assemblies’ election or removal of Speaker of Provincial Assembly, Balochistan because under the Constitution or any law applicable to ECP, the said matter is outside the purview of the ECP.
