ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday sent the foreign funding case against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to an investigative committee.
Earlier this year, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had filed a fresh petition in the ECP against the PML-N and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in the foreign funding case. Prior to that, the PTI had asked the ECP to scrutinise parties’ accounts, confiscate their funds, and refuse them election symbols.
The ECP, during a hearing of the case on Tuesday, forwarded the issue to the investigative committee and instructed the parties concerned to appear before the committee on July 31.
Welcoming the latest development, PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry claimed that there were huge irregularities in funding of both the PML-N and PPP.
