Without mentioning any names, he said that these people are encroaching on selection committee of electoral commissioners, adding that they have heavy presence in the Presidential Palace and the Chief Executive Office.

He said that these people after submission of the first proposal of electoral reforms commission to the president started work to sabotage efforts of the selection committee, which caused at least two months of delay in formation to resume the office.
