Fawad Chaudhry has announced that he will boycott general elections.
Fawad Chaudhry, a former leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, declared he would boycott from general elections because he did not want to cause his employees any more hardships.
Chaudhry said that the Pakistani Election Commission had disregarded its responsibilities and that there was no use in holding elections if the outcomes had “already been decided” in a letter he wrote from prison on Monday.
Also, he declared that although he was prepared to take any risks, he did not want to put his people through any hardship.
The former minister of information also described his attempt to run for office while incarcerated, claiming that despite Jhelum’s lack of a housing society, his nomination papers had been turned down due to an unreported conspiracy. He said that the documents were subsequently rejected since there was no declaration of an Easy Paisa account.
He added that after his nomination papers were approved, his brother was detained and subsequently involved in a NAB case.
Chaudhry said that any government that resulted from such elections would have no legal or moral standing at all.
