The Chief Election Commissioner of Pakistan, Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan has convened an important meeting of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) after increasingly strident demands on the members for submitting resignations.
The commission will review allegations leveled by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and decide on a future line of action in the meeting.
Khan has announced to stage sit-in outside ECP office in Islamabad on October 04.
On the other hand, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has also joined the club against the ECP and demanded resignations of its members.
Meanwhile, following mounting pressure, three members of the ECP on Saturday agreed to tender their resignations.
The ECP members, Justice (retd) Riaz Kiani from Punjab, Justice (retd) Shehzad Akbar Khan from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Justice (retd) Roshan Ali Essani from Sindh, in mutual contact decided to resign from their respective positions.
ECP member from Balochistan Justice (retd) Fazlur Rehman is on leave due to the death of his son and he is not in contact with the other members in this regard.
