The PTI supremo has been summoned on September 14. He should clarify why the ECP should not start contempt procedures against him.

While his direction had later apologized genuinely, the PTI boss had neglected to do likewise, regardless of being given “rehashed openings”.

Babar had then looked for contempt procedures to be started Khan whose activities “seem to have the impact of bringing down the authority” of the ECP and bringing it into “lack of respect and notoriety,” the notice, issued by request of the Election Commission of Pakistan, says.
