Imran’s Removal As PTI Leader Is In Way, The ECP Informs IHC

Imran’s Removal As PTI Leader Is In Way, The ECP Informs IHC

December 14, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Following Imran Khan’s disqualification in the Toshakhana issue, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) told the Islamabad High Court on Tuesday that it had started the process to remove him from his position as PTI chairman.

A district and sessions court in Islamabad has postponed its decision on an ECP petition in the Toshakhana case against Imran Khan, according to ECP Director General Law Mohammad Arshad, who also informed the court that the next hearing of the reference has been set for December 20.

The trial court had heard the commission’s argument on November 22 and is scheduled to render a decision on December 15.

In response to its ruling in the Toshakhana case, the ECP had started the process on December 5 to have Imran Khan resigned as chairman of the PTI. According to Article 63(1)(p) of the Constitution, he was disqualified because he made “false assertions and erroneous disclosure.”

Imran Khan’s appeal against the ECP’s decision to disqualify him was taken up by IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq, however owing to a lack of time, further proceedings were tabled until Dec. 20.


Ex-PM’s counsel terms commission’s disqualification order unconstitutional


Imran Khan’s attorney, Syed Ali Zafar, emphasised the case’s importance in light of the ECP hearings. He informed the IHC that Imran Khan was being sought to be disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) in the Toshakhana matter after the National Assembly speaker had mechanically approved the pleas of a few MNAs without providing any justification, documentation, or proof.

He argued that both the ECP order and the NA speaker’s decision were unlawful. The attorney contended that there must be an earlier pronouncement by a court of law against the member in order for a disqualification under Article 62(1)(f) to occur.

He emphasized that neither before the ECP nor when the commission was asked to respond to the inquiries raised in the reference was there a declaration from a court of law against Imran Khan as required by Article 62(1)(f) in this matter.

Therefore, the speaker’s reference is unjustified and unlawful, and the attorney said that ECP should have rejected the reference by concluding that Imran Khan is not ineligible under Article 62(1)(f).

The attorney countered that the ECP was not a court of law and that the Supreme Court had repeatedly ruled that the ECP could not issue a declaration under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution. He also brought up the most recent Faisal Vawda case, in which the Supreme Court determined that the Commission lacked authority to issue any declarations according to Article 62(1). (f).

The attorney described the current situation as peculiar since assets were bought and traded legally, yet Imran Khan was nonetheless disqualified by the ECP. He cited several decisions of the higher courts where it was determined that while all errors in statements were not grounds for disqualification, it was necessary to determine if the declaration was made with an ulterior or dishonest purpose.

The attorney emphasized that there was no need for Imran Khan to omit the presents from his assets declaration because he had legitimately and in compliance with the regulations bought the assets, and the ECP’s premise that this was done dishonestly was completely false.

Police Finally Register FIR Over Attack On Former Prime Minister Imran Khan

Police Finally Register FIR Over Attack On Former Prime Minister Imran Khan

November 8, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


The Punjab police finally filed a case under terrorism charges, with detained suspect Naveed being named as the primary accused, after the Supreme Court threatened to launch suo motu proceedings if the provincial police failed to file a FIR regarding the attempted assassination of former prime minister Imran Khan.

After a delay of three days, the FIR filed in response to Sub-Inspector Amir Shahzad’s complaint at 11:10 p.m. on Monday under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act and Sections 302, 324, and 440 of the Pakistan Penal Code was registered.

  • Despite PTI’s request, senior government and military figures were not named in the case
  • For the delay in filing a FIR, the IG blames CM Elahi, while Moonis accuses “unknown individuals” and the police.

Even though the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) claimed that a plot to kill him involved the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and a top intelligence official named Major General Faisal Naseer, the names of any of these individuals were not mentioned in the FIR.

The prominent military and government officials were named in an application for the registration of the lawsuit that PTI leader Zubair Khan Niazi submitted.

The applicant and the police personnel reportedly fought over creating an e-tag for the application during the events that took place prior to the registration of the case. Dawn was informed of the situation by a police officer, who added that the staff declined to give the e-tag until they had a copy of the application and all it included.

The official stated that the applicant was reluctant to leave it at the police station’s front desk because his political party’s leadership wished to keep the information in the application confidential owing to the sensitivity of the situation. Until the police filed the FIR in response to a sub-complaint, inspector’s the problem remained unaddressed, he noted.

The Gujrat district police officer (DPO) filed the case after IGP Faisal Shahkar instructed him to do so in accordance with the Supreme Court’s instructions so that a copy of the FIR may be provided to the SC today. Additionally, he informed the DPO about Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial’s directive to register the case within 24 hours.

The Supreme Court took issue with the FIR’s tardy registration earlier in the day and ordered the IGP to file the case within 24 hours if he didn’t want to be subject to suo motu proceedings.

These comments were made by the supreme court during a contempt case brought against the PTI chairman due to the violence on May 25 and the purported PTI violation of an undertaking provided to the court.

Nevertheless, the court issued orders following the hearings about a number of matters, including the attempted murder of Imran Khan, allegations of political meddling in the Punjab police, the Azam Swati case, and the murder investigation involving Arshad Sharif.

In response to the CJ’s comment on the delay in filing the FIR, Mr. Raja stated that he had been informed that the pertinent police station was apprehensive. According to CJP, “No FIR equals no inquiry,” and because of the delay, even the evidence could be changed.

Punjab IG Shahkar, who joined the discussion via video connection from Lahore, explained the delay and stated that, according to the pertinent district police officer (DPO), the police had not yet received a formal complaint. The Chief Minister Parvez Elahi, with whom the IG claimed to have also spoken, had “some misgivings about the content of the FIR,” according to the IG.

The provincial administration has opinions on the topic, but such opinions cannot supersede those of the police, according to the CJP, who also said that regardless of the outcome, the inquiry must continue. The court would back the police in all proper steps, CJ Bandial added, adding that “we will take interest and ensure that this is done.”

The CJP noted that although the government operates independently, no one would be permitted to meddle with police operations either. He warned the IG that “if someone interferes in his job, the court would meddle in their work.” While delaying further proceedings for a week, Justice Bandial instructed the police head to also review the medical findings.

Imran Khan Injured As Man Opens Fire Near PTI Reception Camp

Imran Khan Injured As Man Opens Fire Near PTI Reception Camp

November 3, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, was driven away in a bulletproof car after a gunman opened fire at his container in Gujranwala.

Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, was shot by a guy in Gujranwala, close to the party’s welcome camp, injuring him and alarming the adjacent long march participants.

According to Geo News, the former prime minister suffered injuries to his leg and was taken to a hospital for treatment; however, the hospital’s location remains unclear due to security concerns.

A large anti-government march is being led by the PTI chairman in the direction of Islamabad. He had stated that the protest march will continue for a further 10 months until the election date was established.

The objective was to be at the federal capital by November 4 prior to this announcement. Later, it was changed to November 8–9, and then again, to November 11. Fawad Chaudhry, the head of the PTI, then said that the party will keep altering the dates in order to “wear the administration out.”

Since he was removed from office earlier this year by a resolution of no-confidence, the PTI chair is on his second march toward Islamabad.

Economic uncertainty in Pakistan has been exacerbated by political instability, with foreign rating agencies doubting the ability of the present administration to continue challenging economic policies in the face of political pressure and impending elections.
