The Election Commission passed an illegal order to hold the intra-party elections again within twenty days, the petition alleged. “The order of Election Commission is illegal and against the Constitution,” it said. The court should declare the order of the Election Commission to hold intra-party election null and void, the petition said. The petitioner requested the court to declare the intra-party election held on June 10, 2022 as valid.
