ECP seeks SC’s order to resume contempt proceedings against Imran

27

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) filed a petition in the Supreme Court (SC) seeking a ruling from the top court against the stay order issued by the Lahore High Court suspending the electoral watchdog’s contempt notices to PTI Chairman Imran Khan and the party’s other leaders.

The ECP on August 19 had issued notices to PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar for “contemptuous” remarks against the electoral watchdog. In its notices, the ECP accused Imran of levelling “baseless allegations” at the ECP and its chief in his addresses on July 18, 21, 27, August 4 and 10.

On September 2, the Rawalpindi bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) suspended the contempt notices to the PTI leaders by the ECP.
