Imran Khan has demanded the resignation of Chief Election Commissioner; the question is whether or not this demand carries some moral or legal justification?
With this there comes another Crunch question that after this no confidence from the leader of a top political party does the chief election commissioner himself has any moral or legal ground to remain in the office?
Election Commission deals with the elections. For a transparent election what we need the most is credible and unbiased election Commission.
Now if one leading political party shows its lack of In the head of the election Commission a crunch question is this destined to come to fore That in this condition can we people expect a transparent Election?
Not denying is the fact that if one party to the election shows its no confidence in the chief election commissioner, it puts a big question mark on the whole electoral exercise.
However the story doesn’t end here. We must think over another very important question. The question is whether the party questioning the credibility of the chief election commissioner has any logic or any valid objection against the officeholder or not?
It is an established rule about a judge that any party to the case can question his credibility and in this case he will not preside over the court proceeding of the said case.
However this practice is also an established practice that the questioning party should come with some reasoning and logic otherwise his request to change the judge shall be turned down.
Now as the PTI has shown its displeasure and lack of confidence in the chief election the burden to prove lies with the PTI.
And by the way who appointed the chief election commissioner? None other than Imran Khan. Now the question is yesterday you appointed a person and today you are saying that the said person is not a credible person, spit out Sir isn’t it a joke? Is this the way to run a country? Is this the way to do politics? Can this be called statesmanship?
Sometime it feels that Mr. Imran Doesn’t care about any law, ethics, morality, norm, tradition and even a constitutional provision. What he cares about is only his personal interest. What suits his personal interests is fair and what doesn’t suit his interests is unfair.
What Mr. Khan needs to understand is the fact that Chief Election Commissioner is a constitutional office. It is not that you are changing an Inspector General of police. The office of the Chief Election Commissioner is protected by the constitution and no one can make fun of that.
Mr. Khan should behave like a prudent critical leader and not like an angry young man showing his muscles on the street.
