Imran Khan disqualified from the Election Commission, now will have to fight a long legal battle

Imran Khan: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was found guilty in the ‘Toshakhana’ case. After this, he has been disqualified from holding government office for five years. Now he will have to fight a tough legal battle to regain his old political position.

The Election Commission of Pakistan found Imran guilty of concealing the proceeds from the sale of valuable gifts received from foreign leaders at the Toshakhana (Government Storehouse) as prime minister. After this he lost his Parliament membership. Along with this, he has been banned from contesting elections for five years.

Confused about the ban

There is confusion over whether the five-year ban will last for the five-year term of the current assembly or whether the ban will start from the date of the Election Commission’s decision. The current term of the National Assembly began in August 2018. Khan had resigned from the membership of Parliament in April, but it was not accepted.

In this sense, he will be banned till the completion of the term of the assembly. According to the news, soon after the Election Commission’s decision came, Khan held two meetings with the leaders of his party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). In a pre-released record message, he dismissed the allegations against him. Instead of protesting on the streets, he talked about challenging the legal disqualification.

Will resort to constitutional paths

Imran Khan talked about adopting the constitutional route in the matter of ban, which is quite complicated and the completion of the legal process may take several weeks, if not months. For this, the former Prime Minister can appeal first to the High Court and then to the Supreme Court. The news has been published in ‘Dawn’ newspaper about Khan’s further legal battle.

It added that the party has announced to challenge the disqualification in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), but Khan may face another trial before a sessions judge. The Election Commission has sent a complaint against Khan to the judge for giving false information about the disclosure of gifts.

There was already apprehension about the decision

According to a member of the party’s legal wing of Imran Khan, there was an apprehension of such a decision from the Election Commission, so Senator Syed Ali Zafar, the head of the party’s legal team, had already drafted a petition in this regard. had done it.

However, in the absence of a written order, Khan would not be able to challenge the decision in time as a proper appeal can be filed only on receipt of attested copies of the judgment duly signed by all the members.

ECP hearing non-judicial

The main objection of the PTI party is that the Pakistan Election Commission (ECP) hearing was non-judicial. Which means a legal proceeding which is outside the scope of a particular forum. Advocate Faisal Hussain, a senior member of PTI’s legal team, told Dawn that the party plans to file a petition before the Islamabad High Court.

Which will not challenge the judgment in the Supreme Court. “The order itself is very weak and it will not survive as it has many loopholes,” he said.
