Imran files petition against PM in ECP

Islamabad (Staff Report): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday has filed a request in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s statement on the Senate elections.

According to details, the act comes after the PM hold the stance last week that in the recently concluded Senate elections ‘horse trading’ took place.

It is pertinent to remember that last week, Abbasi claimed that in the Senate chairman elections votes had been ‘sold’.

PM Abbasi had said that he was proud that his party had not spent a single rupee during the Senate elections.

PM had also challenged the PTI chief and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari to say on record that their MPAs were not bought.

He had said, "I challenge Imran and Zardari to appear on television and say that MPAs and votes were not bought."

Abbasi added, "Imran has forgotten how he used to lament that Asif Zardari had bought fourteen PTI MNAs. And when the time to elect the chairman Senate came, he voted for Zardari's candidate."

In his petition, Imran has demanded that the prime minister corroborate his claims before the commission.
