ECP to conduct inquiry of unlawful use of KP govt’s helicopter by Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has decided to hold a hearing on the misuse of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s helicopter in transporting Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, use of government’s machinery in campaigning and the participation of provincial ministers in an electoral rally in Charsadda.

The ECP also decided that it would delay the by-polls in the province unless the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government cooperates in this case.

This decision was taken in a meeting of the ECP held on Sept 19 in Islamabad. Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja chaired the meeting of the commission to review the recent electoral rally by the PTI chief in Charsadda.

During the meeting, the CEC took notice of the flagrant violation of the electoral code of conduct for the upcoming by-polls in the province.

The ECP chairman said the violation of the code of conduct would not be tolerated and it will ensure that all candidates get a level playing field.

The ECP decided to issue notices to the KP Chief Minister Mehmood Khan and members of his cabinet, for participating in electoral rallies.

He asked to convey a message to the provincial government that they will be forced to postpone the by-polls if they do not cooperate with the apex poll body.
