Imran, Tareen to appear before ECP on November 2

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and his colleague Jahangir Tareen will appear before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday. 

According to details, the ECP directed PTI’s chairman and his colleague Jahangir Tareen to appear before it on November 2 (Wednesday) in connection with reference filed against the two PTI top leaders.

ECP had issued notices to Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen to appear personally or file response through their lawyers on November 2 on a reference forwarded by National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, seeking Khan’s disqualification. If they did not turn up, the ECP warned, the ruling will be issued.

Khan announced a final showdown against the government, calling on his workers to lay siege to Islamabad on November 2 until Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigns or presents him for accountability in the backdrop of Panama Papers leaks.
