ISLAMABAD - Election Commissioner of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday clarified that the top election body has no control over holding elections in the country. “Elections can be held in only two situations. Either term or the prime minister dissolves the assemblies,” the top electoral body said while rejecting the statement of PTI Chairman Imran Khan wherein he had targeted Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja. “The ECP will keep taking decisions under the law and the Constitution in fulfilment of its lawful obligations,” says the commission. Former prime minister and PTI chief Imran Khan, in his recent speech, has demanded resignation of CEC following the surfacing of audio leaks allegedly featuring conversations between key figures in the coalition government. The ECP strongly rejected the allegations levelled by a “political figure”, saying the Commision will keep taking decisions under the law and the Constitution in fulfilment of its lawful obligations.
