ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan says hearing of foreign funding case of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf will be held on a daily basis.
In a statement, the ECP spokesperson Altaf Khan said news attributing to Chief Election Commissioner to complete the hearing in fifteen days is baseless and inaccurate.
The spokesperson urged the media to avoid running such negative news.
Federal Minister Shafqat Mehmood earlier said it is amazing that foreign funding case would end in 15 days and demanded that scrutiny of all parties should be held.
On the other hand, chief election commission wrote a letter to the secretary parliamentary matters to inform him that his constitutional term would expire on December 6.
He urged the government to take steps to appoint a new chief election commissioner.
“If steps are not taken to appoint a new chief election commissioner then the ECP would become inactive on December 7,” stated his letter.
In the letter, he also said that two members of the election commission from Sindh and Balochistan had already retired. He warned that in the absence of the chief election commissioner and two members of the commission, the ECP would be unable to take any decision.
