In a startling turn of events, Rawalpindi Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chattha declared his resignation from his position on Saturday, acknowledging the election rigging within his jurisdiction.

During a press conference held at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Chattha revealed that earlier in the day, he had attempted suicide, overwhelmed by the weight of guilt.

Addressing the issue of electoral misconduct in the general elections, Commissioner Rawalpindi openly admitted to tampering with the results, asserting that candidates who had legitimately lost in the Rawalpindi division were falsely declared as winners.

He went on to accuse the Chief Election Commissioner of direct involvement in the electoral rigging, specifically noting that winning candidates were falsely labeled as runner-ups on 13 seats.

Furthermore, Chattha expressed his belief that he deserved punishment and should be held accountable for his transgressions, even suggesting that he should face the penalty of hanging.

In response to these allegations, Caretaker Information Minister Amir Mir dismissed the claims, characterizing them as an attempt to tarnish the credibility of the elections and labeling it a mere political stunt by Chattha, who, according to Mir, might be eyeing a political career in his final weeks before retirement.

It is crucial to note that Rawalpindi Division comprises 13 national assembly seats, with the results of the February 8 elections showing 11 victories for Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML N), 1 for Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and 1 for an independent candidate.
