ISLAMABAD:

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has given more time to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to submit his response in the case pertaining to the violation of the electoral code of conduct.

The case against the former prime minister and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Mehmood Khan regarding the violation of the code was heard by a three-member bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja.

The CM submitted his response in which it was said that his lawyer was busy in the Peshawar High Court (PHC) and would appear before the court and give his arguments in the next hearing.

Imran’s lawyer, Barrister Gohar, appeared before the commission and stated that Imran went to NA-31 Peshawar, but he is not a public office holder, rather he is a candidate.

The commission adjourned the hearing of the case till October 18, giving the PTI chief more time to submit his response.
