PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Friday summoned chief election commissioner and KP chief secretary on December 7 for allegedly not allowing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to hold public meetings despite court orders.
A two-member PHC bench consisting of Justice Ejaz Anwar and Justice SM Attique Shah issued the order on the contempt of court petition filed by PTI KP chapter chief Ali Amin Gandapur and others.
The petitioners contended that the PHC had allowed their party to hold public meetings peacefully while oserving standard operating procedures as part of electioneering. They said, however, despite court orders the PTI leaders applications for arranging public meetings were either rejected or Section 144 was enforced.
The petitioners contended that on the hand hand PTI was being denied the permission for public meetings while on the other other political parties were carrying out activities. The bench summoned the officials to explain their positions on the issue.
