PHC prohibits ECP from ruling against PTI
Qazi Anwar Advocate said that the Election Commission cannot hear the case against the intra-party elections.
Peshawar: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) Monday restrained the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) from ruling against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on latest intra-party elections.
According to the details, a two-member bench comprising Justice Ateeq Shah and Justice Shakeel Ahmed of the PHC heard the case against the Election Commission issuing a notice to PTI regarding intra-party elections.
Qazi Anwar Advocate said in the court that the Election Commission cannot hear the case against the intra-party elections, but the Commission can take the bat sign from Tehreek-e-Insaf.
The court inquired as to how you can infer this from now on. Qazi Anwar replied that the Election Commission is exceeding its jurisdiction.
Newly elected Chairman PTI Barrister Gauhar said that there are 175 political parties, so far no one has challenged the intra-party elections, and whoever challenged the party elections is not a part of it.
Barrister Gohar stated that the ECP issued a notice that if they do not appear, the case will be heard in absentia. We have reservations about the commission, only our case was heard in the foreign funding case. The notice sent by the Election Commission is illegal. The court inquired if they mean there is no provision in the law to challenge intra-party elections.
Later, the PHC ordered the ECP to submit its reply within seven days, restraining it from taking a decision against the PTI on the intra-party elections.
Speaking to the media outside the court, Barrister Gohar Ali Khan said that Imran Khan is the lifetime chairman of PTI, he is a democratic personality and PTI will not boycott the upcoming elections.
He added that High Court has stopped the Election Commission from taking adverse action. If the case was not filed, the Election Commission would have changed the symbol of the bat, which is not acceptable in any case.
The Chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaf continued that the ECP issued 12th date and ordered to appear before the Commission. However, they have good hopes from the Judiciary.
