ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) took notice of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan’s “personal attack” against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Saturday, Express News reported.
Earlier the same day, Khan had addressed a rally in Bahawalpur, where he used words for Nawaz Sharif that the ECP found objectionable.
The entire speech will be put before the ECP Chief Fakhruddin Ebrahim in a meeting on Tuesday, where it will be evaluated whether the speech contained offensive remarks or not.
On Friday, ECP had issued a notification prohibiting political parties and their candidates from launching personal attacks against their opponents.
With election campaign in full swing and parties holding rallies, candidates were seen criticising each other and often resorting to name-calling and rhetoric that could be construed as slander.
