• The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has written to the Cabinet Division asking it to constitute a committee for probing the election results software malfunction.
Amid severe criticism, the ECP had blamed a collapse in the Results Transmission System (RTS) for the unusual delay in the results on election day.
The ECP has asked for technical representatives from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority and National Telecom and Information Technology Security Board to be included in the committee.
The committee should present a report on the matter within a month, the election body has recommended.
Following an agreement with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) will join the PTI in the government.
Addressing a joint press conference with leaders of PTI in Islamabad on Friday, MQM-P chief Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said: “We have visited Bani Gala at the invitation of PTI Chairman Imran Khan, adding that today s meeting is a step forward to extend the journey of democracy.�
He said that instead of personal interests, MQM-P has prioritized the interest of the country, adding that the development of Karachi means the development of Pakistan.
Siddiqui went on to say that the devolution of power will bring more power to people.
