The ECP rejects PTI’s appeal to halt foreign funding case proceedings

ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has rejected Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) asks for to stop procedures in remote subsidizing case on the grounds that a similar case is being heard by the Supreme Court.

Dismissing the request, the ECP asked the party to submit all the funding details before the commission by September 07.

The ECP had reserved its judgement on PTI’s appeal after hearing arguments from both parties.

PTI’s counsel Anwar Mansoor had requested the commission to stop the proceedings in the foreign funding case as a similar case is pending before the apex court.

Former PTI member, Akbar S. Babar had filed a petition in the election commission seeking Imran Khan’s disqualification on receiving funding from prohibited sources.
