Imran to 'voluntarily' appear before ECP on Oct 26
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has decided to appear ‘voluntarily’ before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on October 26.

The announcement came after senior PTI leaders met at Khan's Bani Gala residence in Islamabad to discuss party strategy regarding the ongoing contempt of court case in the ECP.

The party also decided to challenge the arrest warrants issued earlier by the ECP for the PTI chief in the Islamabad High Court. According to the statement, the party maintains that the body does not have the authority to issue arrest warrants.

Last week, the ECP had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the PTI chief for "repeatedly failing to appear for the hearing and for failing to send a written apology to the ECP for his absence in court."

Imran submits more documents to SC:

Earlier on Monday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan submitted more documents to the Supreme Court in connection with the disqualification petition against him and maintained that his money trail of “£672,000” was now before the court in its “entirety.”
