The Election Commission of Pakistan adjourned on Wednesday the contempt of court case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan until the Islamabad High Court decides on the party’s petition regarding the proceedings.
A four-member ECP bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, resumed hearing the case on Wednesday.
As the proceedings began, Shahid Gondal appeared in court to represent the PTI chief. When asked by the CEC regarding the IHC case on the same issue, Gondal said that the case has been adjourned until October 11.
The CEC then remarked that they have still not received a copy of the court order on the issue.
After taking a short break, the ECP adjourned the hearing until October 12. The CEC observed that it will issue its order in the contempt case if the IHC does not decide the case on October 11.
Imran’s counsel Babar Awan, who has been appearing in the case, was also ordered to complete his arguments at the next hearing.
