ECP adjourns references against Imran, Tareen till December 26


Chief Election Commissioner Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan on Thursday adjourned the hearing of references against PTI chief Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen till December 26.
During the hearing, Imran Khan’s lawyer Naeem Bokhari said that the reference against his client was forwarded by Speaker of the National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, so he should defend it himself.
Jahangir Tareen’s lawyer complained that if decision of the reference against his client has been taken then why the commission is trying to open it again.
He also said that Talal Chaudry and Muhammad Khan Daha have appealed to appoint Akram Sheikh the lawyer of this case which is illegal, as they cannot change their lawyer according to law when decision of the case has been reserved.—INP
