ECP restores petition seeking disqualification of Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday restored the petition of Hashim Ali Bhutta seeking disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan.

ECP also ordered the PTI chief to submit his reply till May 23.

The petitioner Hashim Ali Bhutta, in his plea, had said that Imran Khan did not mention his Bani Gala residence and London flats in his asset declaration.

So the petition had also stated that the PTI chief failed to abide by Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

The ECP had earlier dismissed the petition because the petitioner had failed to appear at the hearing.

On the other side Imran Khan’s lawyer said the reasons are not valid to restore the petition and it should be dismissed.

ECP reserved its decision after listing the arguments of both sides, and then announced it.
