Imran Khan questioned by Pakistan's anti-graft body

Imran Khan questioned by Pakistan's anti-graft body”

Pakistan's Election Commission (ECP) issued the list of some 261 winning candidates, but withheld the notifications of nine newly elected parliamentarians, including Khan, who is set to become the country's nineteenth premier, as well as Khawaja Asif, a former foreign minister. Khan has said that the case is politically motivated and has denied any wrongdoing.

Pakistan's Prime Minister-to be, Imran Khan on Tuesday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) here for an ongoing inquiry against him for allegedly misusing helicopters owned by the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) which won 64 seats came second, while the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) bagged 43 seats and finished third.

Under the notification, Khan's wins in the three constituencies will be subject to the commission's final decision in pending cases for violations of its code of conduct.

The ECP move comes a day after the former cricket hero was formally nominated as its candidate by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for the slot of prime minister.

According to reports, Khan is expected to take oath of the office on August 14.

Khan was earlier summoned on July 18, but he failed to appear before the panel sighting elections.

The Lahore High Court stayed the notification in a case filed by PTI's Abid Sher Ali.

On July 29, the ECP announced unofficial results of all 841 national and provincial assemblies' constituencies.

In the July 25 elections, the PTI emerged as the single largest party but fell short of a simple majority in the National Assembly. He was officially nominated as PTI's prime ministerial candidate as well as the leader of their parliamentary committee on Monday.
