ECP’s disqualification does not stop Imran Khan from contesting elections, remarks IHC
Chief Justice Islamabad High Court (IHC) Athar Minallah said on Monday that the verdict of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) disqualifying former prime minister Imran Khan from holding public offices does not stop him from contesting elections.
Two days ago, Imran Khan challenged the ECP’s ruling in the Islamabad High Court through Barrister Ali Zafar saying that the commission does not have the right to give a verdict on corrupt practices.
On Monday, the petition was heard by Chief Justice Athar Minallah. During the hearing, the justice remarked that the ECP’s disqualification does not stop Imran Khan from contesting elections.
