Imran summoned by ECP for violating secrecy of ballot


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was summoned on Wednesday by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in the case pertaining to breaching the secrecy of the ballot.

The development comes a day after the ECP withheld the victory notification of Imran Khan in two constituencies over violation of its code of conduct.

On July 25 the PTI chief had stamped his ballot paper in public, breaking the ECP’s rules regarding keeping one’s vote secret.

The commission had taken notice of the matter on election day after videos of Imran stamping his ballot paper in public had gone viral.

The commission has ordered that Imran appear before it in person or submit his reply on the matter through his lawyer.
