Speaking to a press conference, PRHP spokesperson Ashraf Memon said that his party completely rejected the results of the recent elections, demanding that fresh polls should be held. He commented, “All records of rigging in the elections have been broken. If this was how the elections were to be held, then why were the public’s tax money wasted?”

Memon warned that if his party’s point of view was not taken seriously, then the scope of this protest would be extended to the whole country. “We are closely watching the alliances that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is forming with other parties.” Simultaneously, he said, the PRHP would support the ongoing protests of all other parties which were raising their voices against the alleged rigging. Memon said, “We demand from the Election Commission of Pakistan to declare these elections null and void and hold fresh elections.”
