IHC allows ECP to proceed against Imran Khan for violating code of conduct
ISLAMABAD - The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday allowed the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to proceed against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for the alleged violation of a code of conduct.

The electoral body has issued the show cause notice to the PTI chief for holding rallies in Lahore, Sahiwal and Lodhran during by-polls despite holding a public office.

The PTI, later, challenged the notice in IHC. A single bench comprising, Justice Amir Farooq, conducted hearing in the case and the reserved verdict on April 26.

Today, the high court restored the ECP's notice by rejecting the PTI's plea and directed the electoral body to initiate proceedings in the case.

Earlier this month, the ECP had summoned Imran Khan for using foul language during the campaigning. He, during the hearing, submitted a written assurance of not again using the offensive words in his address.

In a public gathering in Narowal, Imran Khan had said that any Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) worker with a clear conscience would not go to the airport to receive Nawaz Sharif.

“And whoever will go to receive him will be a donkey (fool)," he had said.
