Ellis Copeland | 12 October, 2017, 15:19

Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah advised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan to appear before the Election Commission of Pakistan.

The federal minister's statement came following ECP's issuance of non-bailable warrants against Khan for repeatedly failing to appear before the commission in contempt of court case.

The PTI is set to challenge the warrants in the Islamabad High Court.

PTI chief has also been directed to submit a reply in the petition that was filed against him by Akbar S. Babar.

His counsel then requested the ECP to withdraw a show- cause notice issued on September 24.

He said Imran cast aspersions against a constitutional body.

It has fought three wars with Israel since 2008 and the blockaded Gaza Strip has seen deteriorating humanitarian conditions. Repeated reconciliation attempts have failed since 2007.


Addressing the media, PTI's Babar Awan said the ECP has issued a non-bailable warrant in a case where a bailable warrant has already been dismissed by the IHC.

The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his "scandalous remarks" about the commission.

Despite being given repeated opportunities, the PTI chief refused to tender an unconditional apology in utter disregard of the commission's direction, it added.

Haroon Shinwari, a spokesman for the Election Commission, says its panel of judges issued an arrest warrant for Khan on Thursday.

The order was subsequently sent to relevant police stations and revenue boards for implementation.
