Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nasir has expressed displeasure over the failure of the Result Transmission System (RTS) during the July 25 election.
Hearing a petition filed by Abida Raja, a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate who contested the election on reserved seats, Justice Nisar lambasted the electoral commission (ECP) over RTS failure.
He said the ECP spent millions on the technology yet it failed, adding that he repeatedly telephoned the chief election commissioner but didn’t receive a reply on election day.
