Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday rejected a request to terminate the notice of the leader of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Faisal Vawda.
The commission has sought written reply from PTI leader and accepted the petition to make advocate Rasheed A. Rizvi as party in the matter.
Moreover, the hearing has been adjourned till March 18.
Earlier, Sindh High Court (SHC) had summoned answers on March 16 from the ECP and other parties over PTI leader Faisal Vawda’s petition.
The court has issued a notice in this regard. PTI leaders have handed over the court to ECP. He had asked the High Court to prevent the Election Commission from reviewing his qualifications.
Faisal Vawda insists that the ECP has no jurisdiction to accept complaints against him.
