Pakistan: Govt leaders want Imran banned, disqualified over ECP ‘charge sheet’

Date:

 Members of Pakistan’s ruling coalition have termed the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) verdict in the prohibited funding case of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) a “charge sheet” against the party, Dawn reported on Wednesday.

Some of the members of the ruling coalition have said that this proves that ‘anti-Pakistan forces’ were behind establishment of the party, and labelled party chief Imran Khan everything from a liar, corrupt, foreign agent to a money launderer.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that the ECP’s decision has declared Imran Khan a “certified liar” for submitting false affidavits, while PPP Chairman and foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s spokesman said the verdict proved the former premier was a corrupt person and running his political party under the name of Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital.

Former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif urged the federal government to take “immediate legal action” against Imran Khan following the ECP verdict, saying that Imran used to give “lectures” to people about honesty. “Today, the ECP’s verdict has shown that it is actually him who is the biggest thief in history.

Also taking potshots at the PTI chief, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said Imran Khan had finally been proved to be a “foreign agent”.
