PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday criticised the way one-sided noise was made about the success of [PTI-backed] independents after the announcement of just 10 per cent progressive results after the Feb 8 polling, terming the “projections” illogical. Who was the person behind bringing the terrorists back to Pakistan, Shehbaz questioned – an obvious reference to the PTI founder’s disastrous move to hold talks with the TTP – as he demanded a thorough probe into the issue. The PTI was free to form government in Centre and tackle the huge challenges currently faced by Pakistan, the PML-N president remarked. The practice could only be described as fascism, said the PML-N president. When asked about the alleged victimisation of PTI, Shehbaz recalled how Nawaz Sharif and other PML-N leaders were booked and sentenced in bogus cases.

This is why the chat lock feature is being further improved by the Meta-owned messaging app after the mobile app. It should be noted that the chat lock feature was introduced for mobile apps in May 2023 by which different chats are saved in a folder. But there is a flaw in this feature and that is that you can lock chats only in the main device while they are not locked on linked devices. According to a report by Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is testing a new feature in the beta version of Android devices. Under this feature, for the security and privacy of users, when a chat is locked in the main device, it will also be applied to other linked devices.

Voters should be provided with explanations for the major anomalies in this election, and the ECP should act quickly to allay their worries. It is obvious that there was a problem with the results tabulation procedure in these constituencies, and it needs to be looked into and fixed right away. Several PTI-backed independents in Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Islamabad are among them; some of them witnessed easy wins turn into overnight losses. Withholding the results of the Daska by-election in February 2021 was the first severe and moral measure taken by the current CEC. Now, similar action is required, particularly in those areas where the losing candidates have substantial evidence to support their claims.

Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) chief Pir Sibghatullah Shah, popularly known as Pir Pagara, announced on Monday the forfeiture of the two Sindh Assembly seats won by the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) – a coalition of political parties in Sindh – in the 2024 general elections, alleging electoral rigging. Describing the elections as "unfair", Pagara, during a press conference, called for a peaceful protest against the rigging and announced plans for a sit-in on Feb 16 near the Hyderabad Bypass Road. He alleged that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had been unfairly assigned constituencies won by the GDA, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). Pagara recalled an incident a few months ago when he was approached by an individual, whom he referred to as "a friend", to disband his party and offered two to three national and provincial constituencies. Pagara stated that the GDA would stage a sit-in outside the Sindh Assembly on the day the session commences.

A recent petition filed in the Supreme Court seeking to mandate elected independent candidates to join a political party within three days of their victory raises significant questions about the functioning of parliamentary democracy in the country. However, the proposed solution, which calls for binding independent members to join a political party within a rigid three-day timeline, may infringe upon the rights of elected representatives and limit political diversity within the assemblies. However, it is crucial to strike a balance between preventing potential abuse of power and respecting the democratic rights of elected representatives. The proposed solution, if implemented, may inadvertently suppress political diversity and hinder the true representation of the electorate. While the concerns raised in the petition are valid, the proposed solution requires careful consideration of its potential impact on democratic principles.
