Imran Khan wants military deployed inside polling booths
Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has said military should be deployed inside polling stations in sensitive areas to ensure transparency during the upcoming general elections.
The demand comes at a time when Chief Election Commissioner Fakhruddin G Ebrahim has already expressed his willingness to deploy the military in "sensitive" polling stations, reports The Express Tribune.
"Army personnel should be deployed inside polling booths to ensure transparent voting," said PTI chief Imran Khan, adding that he would forward his suggestion to the CEC very soon.
He further said the PTI would never opt for a political alliance with the two traditional parties -Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), which according to him are supporting each other to prolong their traditional struggle for power.
"If the PTI comes to power, it will try to resolve the issue of Balochistan by inviting all the sardars to the negotiating table," he said, adding it would revamp the police force, which would operate sans political pressure.
