Imran Khan to voluntarily appear before ECP

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan has decided to voluntarily present himself before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on October 26.

The decision was taken in a high-level PTI meeting held in the federal capital. 

Imran decided during the meeting to present himself infront of the ECP on a voluntary basis, reported Geo News. 

According to sources, the ECP was criticised during the high-level PTI meeting and some PTI leaders were quoted as saying that the ECP had failed in performing its basic functions and damaged the credibility of PTI through certain cases. 

Sources also quoted the PTI leaders as saying that the ECP should have learned from the proceedings in the Federal Judicial complex. 

The ECP had issued non-bailable arrest warrants Imran in relation to a contempt of court case against him earlier. 

A five-member ECP bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, had heard the case.

The ECP had also ordered the police to arrest Imran and present him before the commission on October 26.
