Imran challenges ECP's powers to initiate contempt proceedings

Imran challenges ECP's powers to initiate contempt proceedings”

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Monday has challenged the jurisdiction of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in a contempt of court case against the party chairman Imran Khan, ARY News reported.

A five-member bench led by Chief Election Commissioner Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza heard the case.

Responding to this, the petitioner's lawyer asked for a few days to submit a reply to this.

Speaking to the media outside ECP building, PTI's Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said that opponents are spreading false information in the media pertaining to appearance of Imran Khan before the courts.

"We want supremacy of law and constitution", he said.

In another case, about contempt of court against PTI Chairman Imran Khan, the Election Commission adjourned the hearing till 19th of this month. "There is a lot of difference between Imran Khan and Nawaz Sharif". Presenting his arguments, Khan's counsel said that the PTI chief was being criticised for accusing the ECP of biasness but this was not the first time that bias of judges was talked about in a case, adding that everyone has the right to a fair trial.

Earlier, PTI chairman had failed to submit his reply in the case and his counsel sought more time from the election commission for the objective.

He further said that no allegation of misuse of powers and corruption have been leveled against Imran, while the matter was brought to notice just because of word "bigotry".

"Pakistani people are very smart".

There is no accusation of corruption and illegal assets against PTI chief, he added.

Imran Khan expects to hold people accountable for three past three generations but not one should ask anything from him, he said.
