National Assembly condemns call of US House to probe Feb 8 elections

She added that Pakistan would not tolerate any kind of interference from the US and that Pakistan demands relations with US on mutual respect.

Pakistan’s National Assembly passed a resolution condemning the resolution passed by the US House of Representatives calling for the probe in the February 8th, elections of Pakistan.

Allegations of massive irregularities and rigging mar the recent elections in Pakistan. PMLN’s lawmaker Shaista Pervez Malik presented the resolution in the assembly which was passed by the majority of the house. A tit-for-tit resolution called the resolution passed by the US House of Representatives void of facts and interference in the internal matter of Pakistan.

The US resolution called for the “full and independent investigation of claims of interference or irregularities” after expressing concerns over the February 8 polls. “The House takes notice of the resolution passed by the US House of Representatives concerning Pakistan,” Malik declared during the session.

“This kind of meddling in our country’s internal matters is unacceptable,” she said. “It is not appropriate for any global power to interfere in the internal affairs of another country,” said Shaista Pervez Malik.

She added that Pakistan would not tolerate any kind of interference from the US and that Pakistan demands relations with US on mutual respect.

“It is shameful that Pakistan’s sovereignty is under attack and some among us are encouraging this assault. Regrettably, foreign powers are meddling in our internal matters, and we must deter them,” Malik added.

She urged everyone to support this resolution. “We should all denounce these steps, but some are supporting foreign interference, which questions our nation’s sovereignty,” said Shaista Pervez Malik.

Shagufta Jumani remarked, “Those supporting this have no right to call themselves Pakistanis. This is our country, and they should stop interfering.” Meanwhile, opposition members chanted, “Cipher, cipher, shame, shame.”

The resolution HR 901 was passed with an overwhelming vote of 368 against seven votes on Tuesday. Yesterday, Deputy Prime Minister Ishaq Dar had announced to bring the resolution to show solidarity and unity in the house.
