Setting conditions ECP allows Imran to take oath

It was being speculated that Khan would take the oath prior to Pakistan's Independence Day celebrations on August 14. The Election Commission said a notification will now be issued for Khan's victory from the NA-53 constituency in Islamabad.

In his written reply, Khan mentioned that he values the ECP as well as the electoral rules.

"I was told to put my ballot on a table and stamp it when I asked the staffers present there about where to mark the ballot", Khan told the ECP.

The commission then adjourned the hearing till tomorrow.

The newly-elected members of the National Assembly will take oath at 10 am on August 13, after which the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the Assembly will be elected through secret voting, according to Chaudhry.

The ECP had said notices were taken on the basis of media reports suggesting the use of foul language by the leaders.

Imran won NA-53 seat by defeating former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, bagging 92,891 votes in contrast to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader's 44,314 votes.

Beijing's retaliatory move was a "necessary response" to "safeguard its legitimate interests", the ministry said on its website. A possible bright spot is that China may buy more oil from Brazil, which involves longer journey times.

This was confirmed by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Central Additional Information Faisal Javed Khan on Friday.

The electoral body has withheld notification of Khan's victory from the constituency in view of the pending case against the PTI chief for violating the electoral code of conduct.

Failure to maintain the secrecy of vote attracts a punishment of six months in jail and a fine of 1,000 Pakistani rupees, according to Section 185 of the Election Act 2017, The Dawn reported.

The case against the cricketer-turned-politician was filed after Geo News, in a report, claimed that the former KP government, headed by PTI's Pervez Khattak, spent a whopping amount on Khan's travel at the government's expense.

Earlier, on July 30, the ECP had sought a written reply from Imran, who is touted to be the country's next prime minister after his party witnessed a resounding triumph in the July 25 general election.
