PTI move IHC over ECP's acceptance of lawmakers' resignations

PTI Secretary General Asad Umar accused the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) of becoming a part of the PDM alliance on Monday after he filed a petition, on his party’s behalf, in the Islamabad High Court against the electoral body’s decision to accept the resignations of 11 members of the National Assembly.

“A petition has been submitted in the Islamabad High Court against the election commission accepting the resignations of 11 members of the assembly of their choice,” the PTI leader said on Twitter.

“All members of the Tehreek-e-Insaf resigned in front of the entire country. All resignations should be accepted at the same time,” he stated.

Earlier, speaking to media outside IHC, the PTI leader stated, we have approached the court against acceptance of the resignations of 11 members.

“On April 11, 125 of our people resigned on the floor of the assembly, and on April 13, Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri accepted the resignation,” Umar said.

He claimed that party members resigned as a result of of the alleged foreign interference that led to the ouster of their party’s government at the centre.

Umar went on to say that the youth of social media should suggest a party symbol for the ECP as it has become a part of PDM.

The PTI leader accused ECP of engaging in “illegal activity” and stated that the PTI refused to be a part of this conspiracy and thus resigned, and that the ECP accepted 11 resignations of its choice last week.
