The only real evidence of whether rigging has or has not taken place in the 2013 General Elections is in the polling station-wise vote counts (along with copies of Form 14) for every constituency. These are public documents and you have the right to access them. We must ask the ECP to release this information to the public BEFORE results are officially notified - which means it needs to be done immediately, as the ECP will have to notify winners 10 days after Election Day (and no later than 15 days after Election Day). The ECP did release the polling station results after the last General Elections in 2008 - but not until more than six months later, when it was too late to file complaints.
To the Election Commission of Pakistan,
We are writing to request, as a citizen of Pakistan and a voter in the 2013 General Elections, that the ECP publicly release the polling station-wise results of each constituency (along with copies of Form 14) on its website before notifying official results. An objective analysis of polling station vote counts and corrective action by the ECP in cases of irregularities will enhance electoral transparency as well as build public confidence in the electoral process. We are hopeful that the ECP will fulfill this request and release the required information to the public."
Write to email@example.com with the subject line "Public Release of Polling Station-wise Results on ECP Website Immediately". You can write your message any way you choose but this is how I wrote mine - feel free to copy/paste:
- Election Commission of Pakistan
Public release the polling results of each constituency (Form 14)
