The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has disposed of a plea seeking removal of Imran Khan as PTI chairman, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Three-member commission led by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja heard the case on Tuesday.

Imran Khan’s counsel Barrister Gohar appeared before the Commission and submitted a reply in the case.

On CEC’s inquiry whether has any court barred ECP from hearing this case, Barrister Gohar said the court had restrained the ECP from taking any harsh decision.

On this, the CEC remarked hearing the case is not a “stern action”. No court had barred ECP from hearing this case, the CEC further said.

Petitioner Muhammad Afaq Advocate informed the ECP that the notices issued by the Commission were carrying wrong address and date, which was a mistake by the ECP staff.

The Commission censured Muhammad Afaq for raising his voice during the proceedings with CEC responding: “You cannot pressure us by raising your voice.”

The CEC then sent Muhammad Afaq out of the courtroom and later disposed of the petition.
