ISLAMABAD: With just one National Assembly and five Provincial Assembly seats, Awami National Party (ANP) leader Asfandyar Wali announced at a press conference that his party would sit in the opposition in the National and K-P Provincial Assembly.
Commenting on the shocking election results, Wali accept the ANP’s loss saying, “Our mandate was hijacked by terrorist forces who were attacking our rallies during the election campaign”.
He saluted his workers for “participating in the elections despite terrorist attacks.”
Earlier a paper bearing an agreement barring women from voting in Dir surfaced, containing signatures of members of various political forces, including ANP’s Abdul Wahid.
“I don’t know any Abdul Wahid,” claimed Wali.
“If Abdul Wahid does exist and this is true then I order my party workers to cancel his party membership immediately,” said Wali.
He also advised the political parties to accept each other’s mandate.
