Meanwhile, the hearing on the Election Commission’s petition against restoring the election symbol of Imran Khan’s party ‘PTI’ was completed. After this the court has reserved the decision. A High Court of Pakistan on Tuesday reserved its decision on the petition of the Election Commission of Pakistan, in which the Commission had sought to invalidate the organizational election of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party and return its election symbol cricket ‘bat’. It has been urged to reconsider the court’s decision to suspend its (Commission’s) decision.

Imran’s party struggling with uncertainty regarding election symbol

Jailed former prime minister Imran Khan’s party is facing uncertainty over its election symbol after the Election Commission of Pakistan last month rejected PTI’s organizational poll and deprived it of its election symbol cricket ‘bat’ Was. Barrister Gauhar Khan was elected the new president of PTI in the organizational elections held in December. Imran’s party had challenged the Election Commission’s decision in the Peshawar High Court, which on December 26 had suspended the Election Commission’s decision to declare the party’s organizational election unconstitutional and withdraw the party’s election symbol. The Election Commission had challenged this court decision.

The decision should be reviewed, said the Election Commission

According to ‘Dawn’ newspaper, during the hearing before Justice Ajaz Khan on Tuesday, the Election Commission’s lawyer said that the Commission demands a review of the decision of the Peshawar High Court. According to the newspaper, at the very beginning Justice Khan wanted to know whether the Supreme Court had passed any order that the direction issued by a High Court applies to the entire country. The (commission’s) lawyer said, ‘Absolutely.’ The Supreme Court has suspended the decision of the Lahore High Court regarding election officials. He said the (commission’s) decision was suspended in a unilateral decision. He said, “Secondly, the interim relief and the final application are the same.”

Commission’s lawyer raised this demand

At one time the judge asked where the petitioner was in this case, then the Commission’s lawyer said that he did not know. Justice Khan said he cannot pass orders in the matter as it has been listed before the division bench for January 9. However, the Commission’s counsel said that all they want from the court is to withdraw the High Court order. He said that the arguments would be presented before the division bench. According to the newspaper, the court later reserved its decision. On Monday, PTI Chairman Barrister Khan had said that his party will contest the general elections even after not getting cricket ‘bat’ as its election symbol.
