ECP verdict proved Imran a ‘certified liar’: PM

F.P. Report
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday said the verdict of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had yet again proved Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan as a ‘certified liar’ over submitting false affidavits.
“The ECP verdict on PTI foreign funding case charge sheets Imran Niazi for violating the Constitution, submitting false affidavits, and accepting foreign money,” the prime minister said in a tweet after the ECP announced the verdict this morning. “Proven yet again that he is a certified liar,” he added and urged the nation to ponder over the implications of Imran Khan’s politics funded by the foreigners.
The ECP, in a unanimous verdict, ruled that the PTI received the prohibited funding and issued a notice to the party asking as to why the funds should not be confiscated. A three-member ECP bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja announced the verdict in a case filed by PTI’s founding member Akbar S. Babar which remained pending since November 14, 2014.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has reiterated a strong commitment for the resettlement of the flood-affected people. Taking to Twitter, PM Shebaz Sharif noted that the devastation caused by continuous rains and floods in Balochistan is ineffable. “All the government institutions have stepped up rescue and relief work keeping in view the situation,” he wrote.
The Prime Minister further said that the government was working on several fronts to deal with the difficult situation created by the floods. “The challenge indeed is huge but our determination to meet this is even stronger,” he maintained. The premier also appealed to the nation to “step forward and help our suffering brothers and sisters”. He also expressed his gratitude towards the provincial government, Pakistan Army and others involved in the rescue operations in Balochistan.
