ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is determined to end the vote-for-sale in the Senate elections. The opposition wants an old Pakistan where consciences are sold. He expressed these views while talking to media on Saturday after submitting nomination papers for the Senate elections in the Provincial Election Commission. He said that the government was trying to devise a comprehensive mechanism so that no one would dare to raise a finger on the credibility and impartiality of the election results in future. He said that free, fair and transparent elections were the key to democracy. They provide a moral basis for flourishing and strengthening democratic institutions, and the government's electoral reforms help ensure the credibility, impartiality and transparency of elections, including Senate elections.

Instead of supporting, the opposition is obstructing the Senate elections by opposing open voting, which is tantamount to encouraging horse trading and corruption during the election process. He said that including the PPP and the PML-N. Opposition parties, which ruled the country for 10 years after the 2008 and 2013 elections, have failed miserably to develop a mechanism for electoral reform to deal with horse-trading, corruption and sales and vote-buying during the Senate elections. They n He said the opposition was still working against electoral reforms aimed at eliminating the possibility of corruption, vote-buying and horse-trading in the Senate elections, which had been observed in the past.

How will a political party representing a few members in Parliament or the Provincial Assembly secure a seat in the Senate elections, the opposition has not learned from the past and will try to buy political loyalty in the Senate elections. Will people make their children role models like Prime Minister Imran Khan or want them to be Nawaz Sharif or Asif Zardari, every Pakistani patriot will want to follow in the footsteps of Prime Minister Imran Khan because He is the only leader who has the high level of honesty, integrity and dedication to take the country to new heights of prosperity.
