Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) filed a fresh petition with the Islamabad High Court (IHC) On Thursday requesting a prompt decision on the foreign funding issues involving the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), and other parties.
According to local media news, PTI leader Farrukh Habib submitted a separate plea in a pending case in the IHC asking for the judgment in the foreign funding cases involving the PML-N, PPP, and other parties to be made public as soon as possible.
In addition, the former minister asked the court to direct the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to hold daily hearings on matters involving other parties’ prohibited funding.
Habib asserted in the plea that other political parties were given the chance to use the “false information against the PTI” for political gain and that such strategies are an outright assault on democracy.
According to the petition, the fundamental rights of PTI and its members are being “violated,” and it was argued that to defend democracy, significant questions highlighted in the petition should have their answers provided.
Earlier this year, in August, the Election Commission of Pakistan declared that the PTI had indeed received prohibited funds in the case involving prohibited funding (formerly known as the foreign funding case).
