ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan ordered the SSP Islamabad to arrest and produce Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on September 25.
The warrant of arrest has been issued owing to Imran’s continued absence from the ECP with regards to a contempt hearing against him.
The warrant is bailable and mentions that Imran may be let go by the police if and when he submits bail of Rs100,000 along with two sureties and vows to continue attending the ECP hearings unless otherwise stated.
According to the ECP’s warrant, addressed to the Islamabad SSP Operations, Imran has been charged with contempt of ECP under Section 103-A of the Representation of People Act, 1976 for failing to appear before the commission despite a show cause notice.
Nawaz sharif disqualification was revenge not accountability
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz said that the disqualification of my father was revenge not accountability.
While addressing a women convention in Karim Park on Friday, she reiterated her earlier claims that Nawaz Sharif was disqualified because he did not take income from his son.
“Do you accept this unjust verdict?” She asked the NA-120 voters, adding “If you are against the verdict then vote for lion on September 17.”
“Support Nawaz, support progress,” Maryam said to PML-N supporters.
Maryam also hailed the role of female workers of the party and remarked: “The leaders whose sisters and daughters stand with him become invincible.”
“Isn’t the load shedding situation better than it was in 2013,” the former premier’s daughter asked the supporters while referring to PML-N government’s policy of progress and development.
Maryam is handling the NA-120 campaign while her mother and PML-N candidate for the by-poll, Kulsoom Nawaz, undergoes treatment for lymphoma in London.
By-election on the seat left vacant after Sharif’s disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, will be held on September 17.
A total of 44 candidates will contest the NA-120 by-poll.
