ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan has decided to provide copies of documents related to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan to Arsalan Iftikhar.
The ECP has confirmed that Arsalan Iftikhar, son of former chief justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, has sought a copy of nomination papers of the PTI chief. The ECP spokesman said that the documents would be provided to Arsalan Iftikhar within three days in accordance with the legal procedure. The ECP spokesman, however, rejected media reports that a summary has been forwarded to the chief election commission for provision of the documents to Arsalan Iftikhar.
“Nomination papers of parliamentarians are public documents which any citizen can avail through an application,” he said. Reports say Arsalan Iftikhar is preparing to submit a reference with the National Assembly speaker against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan. According to sources, the reference will be filed for not fulfilling the requirements of articles 62 and 63 of the constitution in connection with contesting the general elections. Talking to media persons on Monday, Asralan Iftikhar said he believed that Imran Khan concealed some facts in the nomination papers he had filed to the ECP for contesting the general elections of May 11, 2013.
