The Pakistani Parliament has firmly rejected a US congressional resolution calling for an investigation into alleged rigging in the February 2024 elections. Lawmakers in Islamabad have decried the move as an interference in the country’s internal affairs.

In a strongly worded statement, the National Assembly emphasized that the American request reflects an incomplete and incorrect understanding of Pakistan’s political and electoral processes. The resolution by the US Congress has been perceived as a challenge to Pakistan’s sovereignty and an unwarranted intrusion.

In response, Pakistani lawmakers have drawn attention to pressing global human rights issues. They highlighted Israel’s ongoing conflict in Gaza, describing it as a “genocidal war” against the besieged population. Furthermore, they pointed to what they termed gross human rights violations in India-administered Kashmir and state-sanctioned atrocities against minorities, particularly Muslims, in India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration.

“The House calls upon the US and the world community to take immediate steps to alleviate the sufferings of the innocent people of Gaza and Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” the Pakistani Parliament stated. The call to action urges the international community to focus on these significant humanitarian crises rather than intervening in Pakistan’s electoral matters.
