ECP issues notice to remove Imran as party chairman

52

The Election Commission of Pakistan on Monday while initiating the proceedings over Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf supremo Imran Khan’s disqualification, issued a notice to remove the deposed premier as the party chairman.

Sources privy to the matter said that PTI confirmed of receiving the notice sent by the electoral watchdog, while PTI leader Asad Umar has decided to write a letter to Chief Election Commissioner Sultan Sikandar Raja seeking reason behind issuing the notice.

Earlier, the Lahore High Court on Monday sought a response from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Asad Umar for his diatribe against the judiciary in his Nov 26 speech at his party’s Rawalpindi power show.

Justice Jawad Hassan of the LHC’s Rawalpindi bench heard the petition filed by an additional registrar of the Rawalpindi registry against the former planning minister.
