Gilgit Baltistan announces strike from November 14 to 16

Gilgit Baltistan has announced a strike in region during the upcoming elections from November 14 to 16.

The decision was announced in a notification by the Election Commission of Gilgit Baltistan. The commissioner said that polling will begin in 23 constituencies of the region from 8am to 5pm on November 15.

Rigging claims are baseless: chief election commissioner

Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Election Commissioner Raja Shehbaz Khan has said there is no truth to the accusation that the elections have been rigged.

“I can’t stop people from saying what they want,” he said in an interview with SAMAA TV on Friday. “I ask people where is their mandate being stolen? Please tell me if I have done anything illegal.”

He claimed that the opposition parties are trying to build a narrative against the government. If you remember even in the US Elections Donald Trump said the elections were rigged, he said.

This happens everywhere, he added. “I can assure you that the elections will be neat and clean.”

Khan was asked why he didn’t do anything to stop senators, MPAs and other influential leaders from campaigning in the area. “We have issued 330 violations to people but I couldn’t have stopped them through any mechanism. I have to work under the law. You can’t expect me to stand with a baton to stop people.”

Why is Gilgit-Baltistan so important?

Gilgit-Baltistan is a historically distinct political entity near the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir. It is located at the junction of China, Central and South Asia, and Afghanistan.

Gilgit-Baltistan was previously known as the Federally Administered Northern Areas. It is an autonomous region in northern Pakistan with separate government and electoral system. In 1970, it became a single administrative unit called the Northern Areas under the administrative control of the Ministry of Kashmir Affairs and Northern Areas, formed after the amalgamation of the Gilgit Agency, the Baltistan District of the Ladakh Wazarat, and the states of Hunza and Nagar.

The region is divided into two administrative divisions: Gilgit and Baltistan/Skardu. Its government is made up of the GB Council, Legislative Assembly, ministers, a chief minister and a governor. Its assembly has the power to make laws on 61 subjects, including land revenue and administrative courts and it votes on the budget.

CPEC passes through the Karakoram Highway and covers almost 600 kilometres in GB, giving the area a high profile geopolitically.
Since 1947, GB has not been granted provincial status due to its colonial association with the disputed region of Kashmir. During a recent speech, however, PM Khan promised to make GB into a province soon.
