ISLAMABAD (PAK TIMES): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will not be appeared before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday following the notice issued for violating the electoral code of conduct on the Election Day.
Imran Khan’s point of view will be presented before the election commission through his counsel Mr. Babar Awan. Mr. Khan’s non-appearance will be due to personal commitments.
The chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf met Babar Awan at his resident Bani Gala and exchanged views over the matters concerning the case of violating the secrecy of ballot code, election commission’s move to withhold Khan’s success’ notification and the formation of the government.
On Election Day, July 25, Imran Khan stamped the ballot paper publicly which was captured on video by the media and other people. Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) took notice and summoned Imran Khan for an explanation over the matter.
Election Commission of Pakistan had also issued notices to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president Mian Shehbaz Sharif, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader and former Federal Minister Khawaja Asif and Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari over media talk on the Election Day, 25 July.
Election Commission also issued notices to the media houses for broadcasting the media talks of politicians. ECP has directed all the channels to refrain from such violation or action will be taken against them.
Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) said that the media talk of election candidates is a violation of the code of conduct. It has imposed a ban on politicians’ live media talk earlier.
