ECP orders all parties to submit asset details until August 29

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday ordered all registered political parties to submit asset details by August 29.

All political parties are required to provide the specifics of their assets for the years 2021–2022, under the ECP decision. According to the ECP, the parties are required to disclose both their annual income and their sources of income while submitting asset details.

According to the order, the parties must reveal their financial structure. All political parties will have to prove that they haven’t accepted any illegal or prohibited donations and funding.

The hearing in the prohibited funding case involving PTI was ended  on June 21 last after Petitioner Akbar S. Babar’s financial expert concluded his arguments.

The ECP reserved its verdict after the conclusion of arguments from both sides of the case.

“The case has concluded, the cases of other parties would also come to an end soon,” CEC Sikandar Sultan Raja said while thanking the parties. “Seasoned jurists appeared in the case and several sensitive matters came to the surface,” he said. “Democracy is very important for the country. We are not anxious about what is being said outside, the matter will be decided with justice,” CEC said.

The PM, PPP, Maryam Nawaz and PDM parties have demanded to announce the verdict of the PTI prohibited funding case.
