Senate Elections showed we are losing our moral compass, PM Khan

Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that states disintegrate without justice and rule of law. “Our Prophet PBUH said, “many nations before you were destroyed when there was one law for the powerful and another for the weak.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that states disintegrate without justice and rule of law. “Our Prophet PBUH said “many nations before you were destroyed when there was one law for the powerful and another for the weak.” Throughout history moral decay & corruption have destroyed states because without moral authority states cannot deliver justice,” he tweeted.

“And without justice & rule of law states disintegrate because once moral authority is lost by the state, deal making (NRO) with the powerful criminals is resorted to. The recent Senate elections showed how we are losing our moral compass,” the prime minister wrote on his official Twitter handle, sharing quotes from prominent personalities.

After Senate polls 2021, all eyes are now set on the coming election for the key offices of chairman and deputy chairman of the upper house.

The PTI’s tally in the Senate stands at 25. Government allies, BAP has a total of 12 seats in the Senate and MQM-P three.

The opposition and the ruling alliances now have 53 and 47 members, respectively, in the 100-member new Senate. The election to elect the Senate chairman and deputy chairman will be held on March 12 through secret balloting.

Since the PPP candidate, Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani, won the Senate Election on March 3, there have been speculations that the same person may become the Chairman Senate. The ruling party does not have a majority in the upper house of the parliament but desires to have its candidate elected as the chairman.

Moral corruption in Pakistan

In Pakistan, there has been a discussion on several public platforms about the role of the Election Commission to hold free and fair elections.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the videos showing the shameful way in which politicians buy and sell votes in Senate reflects the total destruction of the nation’s morality by successive ruling elites as they drowned the nation in debt.

According to details, in a series of tweets PM Imran said that cycle of corruption and money laundering is a sordid tale of our political elite. He said that they spend money to come into power and then use political power to make money to purchase bureaucrats, media, and other decision-makers to consolidate their power and rob the nation’s wealth adding that then they launder looted money into offshore accounts and purchase foreign assets and palatial residences abroad.
