The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has said that there was confusion over the open or closed hearing of the foreign funding case.
The ECP will hold an open hearing on the foreign funding case after receiving the report of the scrutiny committee.
According to the spokesperson of the Election Commission, the proceedings of the scrutiny committee will not be open and this proceeding is going on in the presence of the parties.
It may be recalled that the opposition parties have demanded an early decision from the Election Commission in the foreign funding case against the PTI and in this regard, the opposition had recently staged a protest outside the head office of the Election Commission.
A statement issued by the spokesperson of the Election Commission said that the Foreign Funding Case is being processed by the Scrutiny Committee. This is a very important and sensitive case and the decision on merit is in the national interest. After hearing the discussion, it will decide on merit soon and the institution assures that it will decide on merit without any fear or pressure.
