LAHORE: Chairman Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) has challenged the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to deny them reserved seats in the Punjab Assembly in the Lahore High Court.

In the petition filed by the Chairman Sunni Ittehad Council, the Election Commission of Pakistan has been made a party, in which it has been said that the ECP is neither a tribunal nor a court.

In the petition, the stand was taken that the Sunni Ittehad Council should get reserved seats according to the proportion of seats in the Punjab Assembly, it does not matter whether the Sunni Ittehad Council contested the election or not.

In the application of Sahibzada Hamid Raza, it is also said that the action of the ECP is equivalent to amending the Constitution, the decision of the ECP is beyond its powers.

It should be remembered that a few days ago, the Election Commission Pakistan (ECP) rejected the Sunni Ittehad Council’s request for specific seats by four to one.
