Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) reserved the decision in the controversial vote casting case against PTI chairman Imran Khan.
Earlier, ECP heard the controversial vote casting case against Imran Khan and now it also reserved the verdict. Yesterday, ECP asked Imran Khan to submit written apology in controversial vote casting case. However, Imran is accused of not keeping vote secrecy during Pakistan Election 2018.
Imran Khan was seen openly stamping ballot paper in NA-53 Islamabad. However, he beat former PM and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from this constituency. Imran got 92,891 votes while Shahid Khaqan grabbed 44,314 votes from NA-53 during General Election 2018. However, ECP withheld the notification of Imran’s win from the constituency over the violation of code of conduct.
Imran Khan’s counsel Babar Awan represented his case before the ECP today. He said that Imran didn’t intentionally publicly stamp the ballot paper. He asked ECP to issue PTI chief’s victory notification from NA-53. However, ECP rejected the Babar Awan’s reply and asked affidavit from Imran apologizing for the controversial act.
