As the probe into foreign funding to major political parties continues, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has summoned the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on July 15 and the main opposition party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), on July 16 to explain their position.

The scrutiny committee of the ECP has summoned the PTI on July 15 for hearing in a case involving alleged foreign funding to the party from illegal sources. The PTI has been told through the notice that the case will be sent to the commission if the ruling party does not appear before the scrutiny committee.

Akbar S Babar has filed an application with the ECP against the alleged illegal foreign funding to the PTI.

On the other hand, the ECP scrutiny committee has summoned the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on July 16. A meeting of the scrutiny committee will be held on July 16 at 12:00 am to take up the foreign funding case of the PML-N.

The ECP has already directed the scrutiny committee to submit its report on foreign funding to various political parties on July 17.
