ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday put off hearing into applications seeking Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification till Supreme Court delivers its ruling, Samaa reported.

In today’s hearing, according to our correspondent, the ECP resumed hearing into applications filed against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, PTI Chairman Imran Khan and PTI senior leader Jahangir Tareen, seeking their disqualification over Panama Papers leaks.

The ECP panel, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, first heard Speaker Ayaz Sadiq’s reference against Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen.

The CEC issued notices to both PTI leaders for submission of replies on Nov 16.

The ECP also took up a set of applications filed by five political parties seeking Prime Minister’s disqualification over Panama Papers leaks.

In the light of arguments filed by all parties, the ECP said in its ruling that the commission can’t hear these applications as Supreme Court is already hearing the case; hence, the commission put off its hearing till the apex court issues ruling.

Meanwhile, the CEC rejected all miscellaneous applications on disqualification of Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court directed the government and other parties to present their Terms of References (TORs) for formation of commission on Panama Papers on the next hearing on Nov 3.

During the hearing, the government and PTI expressed their consent for the formation of the commission.

The court asked the parties to present in writing their proposal for formation of the commission. The Chief Justice directed all the sides to show restraint in the present situation. The court has adjourned the hearing of the case till Thursday. – Samaa
