PPPP sets up CEMC to watch ECP code of conduct violations.

ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPP-P) has set up Central Election Monitoring Cell (CEMC) to watch violations of code of code issued by Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) during electioneering.

Latif Khosa, general secretary PPPP will be the chairman of CEMC.

First formal meeting of CEMC was held under Latif Khosa Saturday. The participants expressed grave concern over the negative statements coming from leadership and leaders of different political parties including PML-N, PTI against PPP-P leadership and demanded of ECP to take notice of these statements.

The meeting demanded of ECP to ensure that electoral code of conduct is adhered to by all these leaders as these statements may disrupt law and order situation.

The meeting also condemned the remarks made by PTI chief Imran Khan against the president Asif Ali Zardari.

Latif Khosa while addressing the meeting said president Asif Ali Zardari has kept him isolated from political activities fully in pursuance of the orders of ECP and superior judiciary. Targeting his person in electoral rallies and public meetings is not only condemnable but also it is mean bid to promote one's political stature. PTI chief is giving inducement to the youths foreign visas during his election campaign which constitutes sheer breach of code of conduct evolved by ECP, he held.

During the meeting five written complaints on violation of code of conduct were sent to the ECP.
