ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Thursday dismissed an appeal to annul the intra-party elections of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
The petitioner, Yousuf Ali, said in his plea that the PTI’s intra-party elections are marred with irregularities.
According to the petitioner, the PTI amended its party’s constitution violating the Political Parties Act; hence, their intra-party elections should be declared null and void on this step and financial irregularities.
However, the five-member ECP bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner dismissed the plea. –Samaa
