IHC annuls ruling to conclude PTI’s prohibited funding case in one month

Judgment says ECP expected to complete proceedings in fair, just and transparent manner

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has annulled its previous ruling on PTI’s prohibited funding case which called the Election Commission of Pakistan to conclude the case within 30 days.

A two-member bench comprising of Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Babar Sattar heard the PTI’s petition, and partially allowed PTI’s intra-court appeal that challenged the earlier decision and ordered the ECP to wrap up the case in a month.

The judgment has stated that the appeal has been partially allowed after setting aside the previous judgment dated 1-4-2022 to decide the matter within 30 days. It also stated that election commission of Pakistan (ECP) was expected to complete proceedings in reasonable time in a fair, just and transparent manner.

The ECP representatives, during the proceedings, had informed the court that the prohibited funding case was on-going under Political Parties Order, 2002 and the Political Parties Rules, 2002.

In an earlier ruling, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani had dismissed the petition of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf about keeping the party’s funding confidential.
