PTI challenges in Islamabad High Court ruling of ECP about prohibited funding

PTI Additional Secretary-General Omar Ayub urged the court to nullify the August 2 ruling, and also revoke the ECP’s show-cause notice sent to PTI Chairperson Imran Khan.

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf has challenged the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) ruling in the Islamabad High Court (IHC). In its petition, PTI has urged the court to cancel the ruling of the ECP in the prohibited funding case.

PTI Additional Secretary-General Omar Ayub urged the court to nullify the August 2 ruling, and also revoke the ECP’s show-cause notice sent to PTI Chairperson Imran Khan.

The petitioner said he was “grossly aggrieved” by the fact-finding report — which revealed that the PTI had obtained funds from foreign sources — and demanded that it be declared “perverse, incorrect and in excess of authority and jurisdiction”.

In his petition, he also asked the court to “declare that any action suggested by the ECP is beyond its authority and that no action can be taken on the basis of a fact-finding report”.

The PTI also made the ECP a party in the case.

In a unanimous ruling, the ECP’s three-member bench had declared that PTI received prohibited funding.

As per the 68-page order, the ECP verdict states that the PTI received prohibited funding from 34 individuals and 351 businesses, including companies.
