PTI to approach ECP over alleged seizure of nomination papers

Umair Niazi’s father claims DSP confiscated his papers

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has decided to approach the Election Commission of Pakistan over alleged seizure of some of their leader’s nomination papers and the lack of a level playing field.

A delegation of the former ruling party would submit a written application with evidence to the polls overseer on Thursday (today).

PTI leader Umair Niazi’s father has accused Mianwali’s DSP of confiscating nomination papers that he had acquired for himself and his son.

Separately, PTI Chairman Gohar Khan has claimed nomination papers were also taken away from former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s secretary.

In a statement, PTI leader Latif Khosa alleged that his party members were facing difficulties in acquiring nomination papers. He claimed that the PML-N had no opponents in the elections.

“No one can stop the PTI from taking part in the elections,” he said.

Moreover, PTI leader Taimur Ali Jhagra raised a similar issue in an interview with Aaj News on Wednesday. “We are not getting a level playing field,” he said.

In the recent past, the PPP has claimed that the bureaucracy was favouring the PML-N in Punjab and that their party was not getting the opportunity to run an election campaign.
