ISLAMABAD: The ECP on Friday provided Arsalan Iftikhar record of the references filed against PTI chief Imran Khan.
The references were filed against the PTI chief by the late Dr Sher Afgan Niazi and MQM leader Farooq Sattar. Verified copies of the National Assembly speaker’s ruling and the election commission’s decision were also provided to Arsalan Iftikhar. The record was provided to Arsalan Iftikhar, son of former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, based on references and observations filed against the PTI chairman. Arsalan intends to seek proceedings for Imran’s disqualification from the National Assembly allegedly for concealing facts about certain aspects of his personal life in the nomination form.
He had also written an application to the ECP requesting that he be given a copy of the PTI chief’s nomination form which the latter had filed when contesting elections for the National Assembly last year. Arsalan’s decision to file a reference against Imran came after the latter criticised Justice (r) Iftikhar Chaudhry for his alleged role in rigging in the general elections. Imran had also termed Arsalan’s appointment as BoI vice chairman a gift by the PML-N.
