Those trying to rob Senate votes have lost their final battle: Maryam | The Express Tribune

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Friday said that after the presidential ordinance regarding Senate elections was snubbed, the government has brought hidden cameras to the Upper House of the Parliament.

“Those trying to rob Senate votes have lost their final battle today,” Maryam said on Twitter. “They [the government] had to eat their own words after defeat in the Supreme Court (SC) and failing to amend the Constitution which calls for secret ballots and not installing secret cameras.”

The PML-N leader further added that the Constitution had been violated after the opposition refused to give NRO to the ‘vote thieves’.

“Shame on you for stealing the votes; leave the office,” she said.
