ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday issued a notice to Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan and summoned her on December 9 in contempt of court petition.
According to the details garnered, the ECP fixed for hearing contempt petition against Firdous Ashiq Awan. The commission will hear the case on December 9. The ECP also issued notices to the parties in this regard.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) filed an application against the special assistant on her controversial statement about the Election Commission. Petitioner Khalid Mahmood filed a plea in the ECP over her statements.
On November 23, Firdous Ashiq Awan regretted that the opposition parties have been hurling political threats to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) under a new guise.
In a tweet, she said these were the same “elements” which had earlier made allegations against the election commission regarding the Form-45 and the result transmission system.
“The people – companions of those who have accounts, business and treatment in foreign countries – will be rejected in foreign funding case against the PTI case,” Firdous mentioned. She said the opposition has become a living example of political hypocrisy.
فارن میں اکاؤنٹس، کاروبار اور علاج کروانے والے اور انکے ہم نواء فارن فنڈنگ کیس میں بھی منہ کی کھائیں گے۔اپوزیشن سیاسی منافقت کی زندہ مثال بن چکی ہے۔الیکشن کمیشن پر فارم 45 اور آر ٹی ایس کے حوالے سے الزام عائد کرنے والے آج نئے بہروپ میں الیکشن کمیشن کو سیاسی دھمکیاں دے رہے ہیں۔
