On Tuesday, Imran Khan, former prime minister and current chairman of the PTI, had his appeal in a conduct violation case denied by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

The Election Commission of Pakistan stayed a Rs30,000 fine imposed on Imran Khan by the returning officer for breaking the code of conduct during by-elections in Peshawar, while releasing its reserved judgement.

The ECP further stated in its verdict that the former prime minister had three days to appeal the returning officer’s decision, but since that deadline has passed, the appeal is denied.

In preparation for the upcoming NA-45 Kurram by-elections, the electoral watchdog has issued a notice to PTI chairman Imran Khan and the provincial minister for alleged violations of the Election Laws.

Public officials, such as the president, prime minister, chairman/deputy chairman senate, speaker/deputy speaker of an assembly, federal ministers, ministers of state, governors, chief ministers, provincial ministers, and advisers to the prime minister and the chief minister, mayor/chairman/Nazim, and their deputies, are prohibited from running in by-elections by the ECP code of conduct.
