RTS system failure: PTI probe committee unveils the facts

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) probe committee has finalised the inquiry over the issue of the RTS system Failure on the night of General Elections 2018.

PTI has held NADRA responsible for the shutdown of election results software on the polling day.

According to sources, the party had formed an investigating committee headed by PTI Parliamentary leader in the Senate Azam Swati to look into the Results Transmission System (RTS) fault. The committee was also tasked with identifying those responsible and suggest action against them.

The team said that there is proof the General Election 2018 was free and fair but that it has still recommended to carry out a forensic audit of the software failure.

The investigation was completed today and Swati is expected to meet Prime Minister Imran Khan tomorrow (Saturday) and brief him on the report findings.

The Election Commission of Pakistan, which introduced the software for the July 25 election, faced severe criticism after results were unusually delayed on election day.

Opposition parties have since then called the election rigged and called for a probe into the RTS fault.
