ECP Rejects Nawaz Sharif’s Challenge on NA-15 Verdict, Advises Appeal to Election Tribunal

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has made public its reserved decision, dismissing Nawaz Sharif’s application challenging the verdict of NA-15. The ECP’s verdict suggests that the petitioner has the option to approach the Election Tribunal for further legal action. In response to the decision, the ECP has instructed the Returning Officer (RO) to conclude the results within a timeframe of three days.

The decision, composed by Nisar Durrani, a member of the Election Commission of Pakistan from Sindh, has triggered strong sentiments from Nawaz Sharif’s legal representative, who categorizes the election as “unconstitutional, illegal, and against election rules.”
