Karachi (August 06, 2018): Terming the recently held polls ‘worst rigged in history’, the Grand Democratic Alliance has rejected the 2018 elections and demanded re-election at least in Sindh.
This stance was taken by GDA leaders including former chief minister Syed Ghaus Ali Shah, Kishanchand Parwani, Arbab Zakaullah, Zulfiqar Mirza, Sadarudin Shah, Ghulam Murtaza Jatio, Sardar Abdul Raheem and Ayaz Latif Paleejo during a media talk on Monday.
GDA leaders said that election results were changed and rigged on large scale. They said that on what grounds Pakistan Peoples Party were given even more seats than 2008 elections.
“PPP did not get the same number even in 2008, when Mohatrama Benazir Bhutto was killed and there was lot of sympathy for them” he added.

He demanded to appoint impartial bureaucracy and curb corruption from Sindh Province.
The GDA maintained that the mandate of the people of Sindh had been stolen and as the rigging had made three state institutions controversial, it could be harmful for the country.
Earlier, the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) and other allied parties took to the streets in various parts of Sindh on Friday to reject the results of the 2018 general elections in chorus.
Their leaders remonstrated that the elections were massively rigged, terming the process ‘selection’ in the guise of election.
“Na manzoor, na mazoor dhandli wale elections na manzoor [we don’t accept, we don’t accept, the rigged elections we don’t accept],” shouted thousands of protesters who gathered for a sit-in in Hyderabad on Friday. The supporters of Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-N), Pakistan Peoples Party-Workers (PPP-Workers), Qaumi Awami Tehreek and MMA, among other parties, participated in the demonstration.
