PTI foreign funding case: Election Commission to hear on March 16

It may be recalled that a case against the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for allegedly obtaining foreign funding from illicit sources has been pending for six years.

The case was taken to the Election Commission in 2014 by Akbar S. Babar, one of the founding members of PTI.

The petitioner alleges that PTI received funds from foreigners in addition to Pakistanis living abroad, which is not permitted by Pakistani law.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has claimed that its Jaat did not receive funds from prohibited sources and there are documents of the funds received.

The PTI has filed six petitions in the Islamabad High Court, arguing that the ECP does not have the authority to scrutinize any party’s accounts.

The incumbent ruling party also sought a stay on the jurisdiction of the scrutiny committee set up by the Election Commission to look into the matter and to stop it from functioning.

Legal experts say that if any party is found to be receiving funds from illicit sources, the Election Commission will send a reference to the then government against that party, which the government will have to implement for the time being.

The Election Commission will write to the federal government regarding the banning of this political party and the federal government will send the matter to the Supreme Court within 15 days.

If the Supreme Court upholds the reference, then the political party will be dissolved. In case of dissolution of a political party, apart from the members of Parliament belonging to this party, the members of the Provincial Assembly and the representatives of the local government will also be disqualified.
