The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has on Wednesday postponed the decision to suspend Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest warrants in contempt of court case till October 12.
The hearing was resumed by a four-member ECP bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan. PTI counsel Babar Awan did not appear before the commission, and the case was argued by Shahid Gondal.
CEC inquired Gondal about the petition against Imran Khan in the Islamabad High Court on the same issue. The counsel replied that the case in IHC has been adjourned till October 11.
Sardar Raza Khan remarked that the commission has not received any copy of the court order. The bench then took a short break and postponed the hearing till October 12 afterward.
