LAHORE: Former Punjab chief minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has accused PML-N of using police and administration in their favor ahead of general elections. 

In his information media talk outside the Judicial Complex, Parvez Elahi urged the Election Commission of Pakistan to take notice of ‘pre-poll’ rigging by PML-N.

The former chief minister said PTI will move Supreme Court after the announcement of the election schedule.

He claimed that no one will accept the election if PTI is barred from taking part in the process. “PTI candidates will come to the scene after the announcement of the schedule.”

Elahi announced that he would contest general elections from Attock, Gujrat, and Mandi Bahauddin. Like the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), the PTI president also demanded  “level playing field” in the election.
