The federal government is likely to issue an ordinance today to set up a judicial commission that will be tasked with investigating alleged rigging in last general elections..
Yesterday, all parliamentary parties endorsed establishment of the commission; however, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) opposed the move.
The Constitution of the body is a longstanding demand of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf that blames ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz for rigging in 2013 elections.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said yesterday that the political leadership has been taken into confidence, hoping that the establishment of the commission will help end political deadlock.
According to sources, the government is likely to issue an ordinance following National Assembly session this evening to formally constitute the much-demanded body.
