Pakistan’s Election Commission issues warrant against Imran Khan

Pakistan’s election commission has issued a bailable arrest warrant against cricketer- turned-politician Imran Khan for repeatedly failing to appear before it in a contempt case.

The Election Commission of Pakistan was hearing a case against 64-year-old Khan filed by a dissident from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and one of the founding members Akbar S. Babar.

The ECP ordered the party chief to appear before the court on September 25.

The counsel for Imran, Babar Awan, argued that the party chief was abroad and had returned to the country just an hour ago. On this, the counsel for the petitioner argued that the ECP’s orders have been violated.

“Had he (Imran Khan) respected the institutions, he would have been present here,” said the counsel, asking the commission to continue with the regular proceeding.
