Islamabad (Staff Report/Agencies): The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday ruled to declare PTI Chairman Imran Khan as the winning candidate from all the seven constituencies he won during last year’s by-elections.
A five-member bench of the electoral body, headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikander Sultan Raja, announced the verdict reserved last month.
The PTI chief had contested by-polls on six seats — NA-22, NA-24, NA-31, NA-108, NA-118, and NA-239 — on October 16 while the election on NA-45 was held on October 30. But Imran Khan failed to submit the details of election expenses for the constituencies he had contested.
The ECP had taken notice of the PTI chief’s failure to submit the details and subsequently withheld the notification of his victory over non-compliance of the commission’s orders.
