ISLAMABAD:  PML-N's spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said Monday that  the federal government has  developed the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) for election rigging and  proposed that the Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) is "a plan to cover this deception."

The spokesperson termed the election reforms introduced by Prime Minister Imran Khan and PMDA 'black laws', saying  that PML-N rejects  the EVMs and the authority as they are both "unconstitutional".

"This incompetent government is now preparing to pass the black law of PMDA but even then it will not be able to conceal its incompetence, ineligibility, and corruption," said Aurangzeb.

The PML-N will not let anyone deprive the people of their right to vote or their freedom of expression, she added.

While referring to PM Imran Khan, Aurangzeb said that the one who cites the examples of West turned out to be 'the worst dictator' in terms of constitutional rights and civil liberties.

“Imran Khan Mafia Private Limited Company wants that corruption keeps happening under their patronage and no one exposes them. They want to ruin the economy by robbing the citizens in the name of sugar flour and other utilities and no one raises questions or speaks against them,” said Aurangzeb.
