PTI challenges Election Commission of Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has challenged the jurisdiction of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in the party funding case and contempt of court case against its Chairman Imran Khan, Samaa reported.

A bench, headed by Chief Election Commission Commissioner Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, heard the two cases on Monday.

PTI’s counsel, in his arguments, said that election commission cannot receive complaints against any political parties.

“First, it should be decided whether ECP has authority to listen to the cases or not,” the lawyer said.

Chief Election Commissioner, in his remarks, asked whether the state institute will always be a target of criticism if it cannot hear such cases.
