Imran should respect institutions and appear in ECP: Khurshid Shah

Pakistan Election Commission issues non-bailable arrest warrant against Imran Khan Imran Khan proclaimed offender but not being arrested: Daniyal Aziz

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders have condemned the issuance of the non-bailable arrest warrant of its chairman Imran Khan by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

Naeemul Haq, spokesperson of PTI stated that the party will file a review petition in the Islamabad high court against the order.

"A new warrant is issued in the same case where a bailable warrant was already suspended".

The money was later sent to Pakistan through supposedly illegal channels, which the popular politician then allegedly concealed in his annual audit reports submitted to the commission.

USA to stand with Puerto Rico until "job is done" -White House
It has killed at least 45 people, and about 85 percent of Puerto Rico residents still lack electricity. Trump countered by praising FEMA and first-responders as doing a " great job ".

"We have made a decision to challenge the ECP order today because it is illegal and the commission has no jurisdiction to issue any arrest warrants for a political leader", Khan's spokesman Naeemul Haq told Anadolu Agency. Earlier, a bailable arrest warrant was issued by the ECP on September 14, after Khan failed to appear for the hearing on the case. This warrant has been issued for failing to appear in the court repeatedly and not giving a written justification or apology to the court for not appearing despite various letters.

The ECP further accused him of underestimating the authority of the commission and "bringing it into disrepute and disrespect and to interfere with, obstruct, interrupt and prejudice the process of law and the due course of proceedings, and scandalising the commission".

Though the ECP claimed on August 10 that it has the legal right to hear the contempt case against Imran Khan, the PTI chief had earlier challenged the commission's jurisdiction to initiate hearing.
