ISI disbands wing used to rig polls, will focus on terror
The ISI official also said the agency would no longer “spy” on politicians and their activities. The agency has completely disassociated itself from making or breaking political parties and alliances, the official said.
The decision to wind up the agency’s political wing has been conveyed to the political leadership.
Several former ISI officials who served in the agency during the regime of former president Pervez Musharraf have recently admitted in media interviews that the organization played a key role in rigging elections in recent years. (via ISI disbands wing used to rig polls, will focus on terror).
Is this for real …
After many years, news coming out of Pakistan shows some real steps at political reform. The tribal jirga, the IMF loans, the cold turkey by China, US and Saudi Arabia.
All this is good news. Will it remain?
Will Pakistan revert to its mean?
