ECP reacts over the demands made by PM Khan on the foreign funding case
On Thursday, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) said that proceedings of scrutiny committee in PTI foreign funding case cannot be broadcasted.
Spokesperson of ECP, in a statement, urged people to avoid making unnecessary statements and analysis about the case without any evidence. ECP further said that decision in the foreign funding case will be taken on merit without any fear and pressure.
ECP said the scrutiny committee will present its comprehensive recommendation to the commission after taking stock of all the aspects. Earlier Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that foreign funding case must be opened and challenged to broadcast case proceedings live on television.
Talking to media in Waziristan, he said that the foreign funding case should be heard in the presence of party leaders. He said that political fundraising was done only by the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), while the country is run on the remittances sent by overseas Pakistanis.
Imran Khan said that Shaukat Khanum’s funding came from overseas Pakistanis. “These (opposition) parties and I know what foreign funding is. A number of countries gave funds to these parties. I cannot name those countries because of the relations,” he added.
