Imran Khan apologies to poll body for voting in open

@airnewss

Pakistan's Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan today tendered a written apology for violating the secrecy of the ballot, prompting the election commission to withdraw its notice to him, paving the way for his swearing-in next week. 


Dawn news reported the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), in a 3-1 vote, accepted the apology submitted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairperson.  It also ordered the issuance of notification for his victory in Islamabad's NA-53 constituency where he stamped the ballot paper publicly instead of going behind the voting screen. 

The report said Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) retired Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza disagreed with the ECP's Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa members, who were in favour of accepting the apology.

The written reply and the affidavit were submitted by Khan during the hearing held by a four-member bench headed by Raza as the ECP had sought a signed apology from Khan for violating the electoral code of conduct.
