ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Election Commission (ECP) has deferred its decision in a contempt case against the head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and others.
The ECP reserved the verdict following the conclusion of both parties’ arguments. The Pakistan Election Commission will declare the results on June 20.
Today (June 5), the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman in a personal capacity in the matter, but he did not appear.
The ECP had previously issued complaints to the former prime minister and others for allegedly using “intemperate” language against Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikander Sultan Raja and the electoral watchdog in August 2022.
PTI leaders have consistently slammed the commission and CEC Sikandar Raja, referring to the electoral body as a “subsidiary of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.”
