The Election Commission of Pakistan has clarified that the proceedings of the scrutiny committee in the foreign funding case cannot be held at public level, unnecessary and without evidence comments should be avoided.
On the foreign funding case, the spokesperson of the Election Commission said that the scrutiny committee’s proceedings in the foreign funding case are ongoing. The scrutiny committee will present its comprehensive recommendations to the Election Commission. The Commission will provide recommendations to both the parties in an open hearing. The Election Commission will decide on the merits without any fear or pressure.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that there should be an open hearing of the foreign funding case. I challenge the foreign funding case to be shown live on TV. In the foreign funding case, the party leaders should sit and listen to the case. Only the PTI raised political funds, the country runs on remittances sent by overseas Pakistanis.
