The larger bench of the Islamabad High Court comprising Chief Justice Aamir Farooq, Justice Mian Gul Hasan and Justice Babar Sattar reserved the decision on January 11 after hearing the arguments. It was done.
Former Secretary of Election Commission of Pakistan Kanwar Dilshad termed this decision as important after which the party may face many bad results.
Mr. Dilshad said that PTI had approached the High Court against the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan in the Prohibited Money case under Sections 204 and 210 of the Election Act, 2017. which allows the commission to confiscate money from the party. When asked about the implications of the court’s decision, Mr. Dilshad said that the Election Commission of Pakistan can now freeze PTI’s assets under the law. Apart from this, the Election Commission can also withdraw the election symbol of PTI.
