ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has Thursday requested the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to indefinitely postpone the hearing of his disqualification case.
Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sardar Raza headed the four-member bench that heard PTI chairman’s foreign funding case, and Imran once again failed to submit his reply.
Imran Khan’s counsel Shahid Gondal presented Supreme Court’s order of June 13 regarding the allegations of using prohibited sources before the commission, and took the stance that the apex court has listened to the arguments of ECP’s lawyer, and has indefinitely postponed the case against Imran that was filed by Akbar S Babar.
Shahid Gondal further added that the applications of Akbar S Babar and Hashim Ali Bhutta are of same nature, therefore, petition of Bhutta against Imran should also be indefinitely postponed.
Hashim Ali Bhutta’s lawyer opposed the request made by Shahid Gondal, and stated that the petition of his client is totally different to that of Akbar S Babar’s.
