Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja questioned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s win in the recent by-polls, saying an elected member of the National Assembly cannot contest elections again.
The CEC made the remarks while presiding over a hearing regarding the violation of the election code of conduct by the PTI chairman when he held a rally in the NA-24 constituency of Charsadda prior to the by-polls.
“Where is it written in the Constitution that if a person is a member of the National Assembly, he can again contest the election for being a member of the assembly?’ the CEC asked Imran’s counsel.
“Your client says there have been 150 resignations. Where are the resignations? Bring those resignations, we will accept them now,” added the CEC.
