Nomination Papers Submittal Date Extended

Nomination Papers Submittal Date Extended

Today March 31, 2013 is the last date to submit the nomination papers for 2013 elections. This date was extended for two days from the previous date. General impression is this was done to give the chance to prospective contenders to get the bills and dues cleared before submitting their nomination papers. This may be correct.

But the insiders say this was done to facilitate the political parties to give them more time to decide about their candidate to submit their papers from which constituency.

Would you call this is a fair practice? Absolutely NOT.

Do the political parties have any influence on the working of Election Commission? What does it show you.

Did any political party or anybody for that matter asked to assign more days for scrutinizing the eligibility of contenders except Dr. Tahirul Qadri. He went to Supreme Court also to get this thing implemented but Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudary, Chief Justice did not like his idea and through him out the Court.
