ISLAMABAD (Web Desk): Former minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should decide foreign funding cases of all political parties simultaneously.
“Our stance in foreign funding case is only that the commission announce its verdict regarding three political parties at same time,” the minister said in a tweet and added, “The funding laws are intended to ensure that the voters are aware that who is funding a political party.”
فنڈنگ کیس میں ہمارا مؤقف یہ ہے کہ تینوں جماعتوں کی فنڈنگ کا فیصلہ اکٹھا آنا چاہیے ،فنڈنگ کے قانون کامقصد یہ ہے کہ ووٹر کو پتہ ہو کہ سیاسی جماعت کی فنڈنگ کون کر رہا ہے تحریک انصاف نے 40ہزار سے زیادہ ڈونرز کی تفصیلات الیکشن کمیشن کو دیں ہیں،— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) July 29, 2022
Earlier, the federal government doubled down on its demand, urging the ECP to issue the verdict on PTI's foreign funding case — which has been pending from last eight years.
PTI’s founding member Akbar S Babar had filed the case in 2014, alleging that the party received foreign funding and the ECP, on June 21, reserved the verdict in the case.
