ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court(IHC) made the notification of the success of three constituencies of the federal capital subject to the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

Islamabad High Court Justice Miangul Hasan Aurangzeb and Justice Arbab Tahir heard the petitions against the election results and notification of the three constituencies of Islamabad.

During the hearing, Justice Miangul Hasan said that the notification for the formation of election tribunals had come before this court, but the petitioner hid this notification from the court.

The court said that the ECP itself issues a stay order and issues a notification by itself. This situation raises serious questions about the work of the constitutional body. If the commission declares the complaints valid, what will happen to the notification?

The court remarked that the notification is subject to the decision of the Election Commission on the petitions, the returning officer refused the consolidation, and later the notification took place, therefore the court issued a notice to the ECP by injunction.
