ISLAMABAD: On the crucial day of the 2024 elections, internet services across the nation were abruptly suspended, sparking allegations of rigging by prominent political figure Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar.
Khokhar, known for his vocal stance, raised concerns as reports emerged of mobile phone networks also being shut down. He asserted that such measures were a blatant attempt to manipulate the electoral process, depriving candidates of vital communication channels with their agents and election machinery.
“Cutting off candidates from their agents and the election apparatus is a flagrant abuse of democratic principles,” Khokhar said.
Expressing outright rejection of the unfolding situation, Khokhar condemned what he described as “bullying tactics” aimed at influencing the election outcome.
The suspension of internet and mobile services on election day has ignited widespread debate, with citizens and political observers questioning the motives behind such drastic measures. As the nation awaits the outcome of the 2024 elections, concerns over the integrity of the electoral process continue to loom large.
Politicians cast votes
Meanwhile, prominent politicians Shehbaz Sharif from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Aseefa Bhutto Zardari from Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have cast their votes.
Sharif was the first politician to cast his vote in Elections 2024. Talking to media outside the polling station, he emphasised the importance of a government filled with goodwill gestures and love for the nation.
