Inquiry Committee Concludes: Former Rawalpindi Commissioner’s Election Rigging Allegations Found False

Islamabad: An inquiry committee convened by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has wrapped up its investigation into allegations of election rigging raised by former Rawalpindi Commissioner Liaquat Chattha, concluding that the accusations were unfounded and based on falsehoods.

According to the committee’s report submitted on Friday, it recommends taking legal action against Chattha for disseminating misinformation and potentially tarnishing the integrity of the commission.

Initially, Chattha had made grave allegations against the ECP, asserting that he faced pressure to manipulate election outcomes in Rawalpindi. However, after a thorough investigation conducted by the committee, including testimonies and evidence review, no substantiation for these claims was found.

The ECP’s inquiry committee meticulously examined Chattha’s allegations, scrutinizing evidence and interviewing pertinent officials. Sources reveal that the committee’s findings unequivocally refuted the assertions of electoral malpractice.

During the inquiry proceedings, Chattha purportedly confessed to being swayed by external influences when making his statements—a detail that was included in the inquiry report, according to insider sources.

The report indicates that Chattha expressed remorse for his remarks before the inquiry committee, as per information obtained from sources familiar with the matter.

The inquiry report provides detailed insights, including Chattha’s statement and specifics regarding 6D votes, as well as votes from national and provincial constituencies, as gleaned from internal sources.

In summary, the inquiry findings discredit the credibility of the allegations leveled by the former Rawalpindi commissioner, according to reports emanating from informed sources within the ECP.
