Furthermore, he asked the media to fully cover the election campaign for the GB assembly to be held on Sunday.

He said PTI led the efforts for legislation for transparent elections and forced PML-N to carry out electoral reforms.
He said that a special electoral committee was formed for reforms to ensure transparent election process.
The opposition accepted the only election they win otherwise they create drama of rigging, he added.
Meanwhile, he slammed opposition parties not democratic and even their attitude remain democratic.
