Toshakhana disqualification reference against Imran

The Election Commission of Pakistan will announce the verdict in the Toshakhana disqualification reference filed against former prime minister Imran Khan today (Friday) at 2pm.

According to a notice, ECP ordered all the relevant parties or their counsels to appear before the electoral watchdog at its secretariat in Islamabad.

The ECP also sent a letter to the Islamabad police requesting “foolproof security” inside and outside the watchdog’s premises for the full day in order to “avoid any untoward incident”. The letter also requested that two security personnel in civil dress and a traffic warden be provided as well.

The ECP stressed that all necessary security arrangements be completed, particularly inside the ECP Secretariat building, and the matter is treated as “most urgent”.

The ECP had reserved its verdict in the Toshakhana case on September 19. The reference was filed against the PTI chairman by the coalition government, for “not sharing details” of Toshakhana gifts and proceeds from their alleged sale.
