He said that he never seen as many irregularities as in the elections of 2013.
SHAFQAT MAHMOOD OF PTI said that Waseem Akhter is accusing PTI because police in Karachi is like a slave of MQM. He said that police does not take instructions from the political leadership in KPK. He said that a party famous for target killing and extortion does not justify to calling PTI as Tahreek-e-Nainsafi. He said that if anyone from PTI tried to influence the police his name should be revealed so that the party could take action against him.
He said that Nawaz Sharif is very benignant to Najam Sethi the issue is in the court so he will not comment anymore on it. He said that Najam Sethi himself stated that authority was withdrawn from him few days prior to the elections. He said that if Najam Sethi statement is true he should have resigned. He said that the court removed Najam Sethi as chairman PCB but Nawaz Sharif over ruled the court decision and reinstated him. He said that he can understand the out cry of MQM because they always win the elections through intimidation.

SHEIKH WAQAS AKRAM OF PML-N said that Mian Iftikhar is respected in the whole of the country he even pardoned the killer of his son. He said that PTI has depoliticized the police in KPK but if it does something wrong it should be hold accountable.
He said that Nawaz Sharif can appoint anybody as chairman PCB and his niece was elected as MNA on merit.
He said that the election commission of Pakistan does not have enough staff to hold elections in the country.
He said that local body elections in Punjab will be held in September or October this year as well.
