 ECP rejects allegations levelled by a ‘political figure’
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.
