ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) approached the Supreme Court against the Peshawar High Court (PHC) verdict that annulled the electoral body’s decision to declare PTI’s intra-party polls unconstitutional and stripping the party bat electoral symbol.

“The Peshawar High Court decision should be declared illegal. PTI did not hold intra-party elections as per the Election Act,” the ECP stated in its plea submitted to the top court.

The Election Commission held an important meeting regarding the decision of the Peshawar High Court on the symbol of the bat.

The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja at the Election Commission Secretariat, in which four members of the commission and special secretaries participated.

In the meeting, the decision of the Peshawar High Court was consulted, after which it was decided to challenge the verdict of the Peshawar High Court in the Supreme Court.

It was decided in the meeting that the Election Commission will prepare the petition soon.

Earlier, the Peshawar High Court suspended the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan and ordered the restoration of PTI’s election symbol. The court also ordered the ECP to upload the notification on the website.

The court said that the ECP should publish the party certificate under Article 209 of the Election Act, 2017 and the Election Commission should allot the election symbol to PTI under Article 215.
