ECP will hear controversial vote casting case against Imran Khan today


Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will hear the controversial vote casting case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan today.

ECP will hear the suo motu case of controversial vote casting against Imran Khan on Thursday (today). 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.

Imran Khan’s counsel Babar Awan will represent his case before the ECP today. However, ECP withheld the notification of Imran’s win from the constituency over the violation of code of conduct.

Section 185 of the Election Act elaborates that a person could be imprisoned for six months or could also face fine for not maintaining secrecy during vote casting.

However, Imran Khan made the history by winning all 5 National Assembly constituencies during Pakistan Election 2018.
