security concerns delay imran khan’s appearance before election commission
A Significant hearing Regarding Contempt Cases against Imran Khan the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) faces a delay. The Reason is the Concern Expressed by the Interior Ministry and the Islamabad Capital Territory Police about the Safety of bringing Imran Khan before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). These Concerns have been Communicated to the ECP and it has raised Questions about how and when the Proceedings will take Place.
In Preparation for this hearing the ECP had issued Orders for Imran Khan to appear before them. However, it’s now been Deemed a “security risk” to Produce him before the ECP Bench on October 24, as Originally Planned.
Imran Khan had Served as the Prime Minister but was Removed from office through a Vote of no Confidence in April 2022. Contempt Cases were initiated against him leading to this upcoming hearing. While the ECP also issued Similar Orders for Fawad Chaudhry a former Senior PTI member it added Arrest warrants for Chaudhry.
Imran Khan is Currently in Adiala jail facing trial Under the Official Secrets Act. Due to Security concerns, the trial is being Conducted within the jail Premises.
In another matter the ECP is Considering a Request from the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party to use the ‘Eagle’ as an Electoral Symbol. This Request was made after the Election Commission Canceled the Registration of the All Pakistan Muslim League Making the ‘Eagle’ Symbol available.
The ECP has Ordered the Release of Waqar Ali, a Staff Officer to the Prime Minister and his Appointment as Deputy Commissioner of Sheikhupura. This Decision comes after Discussions about his Transfer and it’s been Suggested that he Might be Posted in Kasur instead of Sheikhupura. Written orders are to be issued to Conclude the matter.
