ISLAMABAD – Embattled Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has filed a review petition in Supreme Court against the court's previous ruling taking back 'bat' symbol from the former ruling party.

Despite having no chance to win, Imran Khan's party has not given up its belief that it can win upcomig polls. The party is aiming to overcome the apex court ruling with last minute review appeal.

PTI was stripped of its iconic electoral symbol, cricket bat, and its candidates are now forced to run as independents and on Tuesday, the party's legal eagles filed petition, and named ECP as party.

The PTI legal team including Barrister Ali Zafar and Hamid Khan maintained that intra-party elections were conducted as per the party's constitution and the electoral watchdog ECP had no powers to review it.

In its petition, PTI seeks a reversal of restoration of the Peshawar High Court's verdict that allowed them to enter polls with bat symbol. It cites irregularities in legal proceedings and unfair treatment by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

PTI blamed ECP of excluding them from general elections through different means. It further mentioend day light abductions and attempts to snatch nomination papers.

The party called for level playing field, urging court to hold the commission accountable for its actions.
