Imran Khan questioned by Pakistan's anti-graft body

Imran Khan questioned by Pakistan's anti-graft body

On August 3, the NAB asked Khan to appear before it for questioning. These constituencies include Lahore's NA-131 constituency from where according to unofficial results PTI chairman Imran Khan has defeated former railways minister Khawaja Saad Rafique.

Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday has chose to halt election results of 32 national and provincial assemblies' constituencies. Mehru Hayat, daughter of Imran's wife Bushra Maneka, and her friend Farah Khan congratulated the prime minister designate for the win in elections and expressed contentment over the party's leadership and manifesto.

Khan, whose center-right Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is set to form the government for the next five years in the wake of last month's controversial elections, found himself in hot water after he was found guilty of violating ballot secrecy on July 25.

The election commission says the withholding of notifications will not affect the National Assembly's election of its next prime minister, speaker, and deputy speaker, expected next week.

Notification of victory from Islamabad was withheld for a case related to violation of election code of conduct against Mr Khan.

The PTI chief had been summoned by the NAB on July 18, 2018.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said the party will nominate Imran at a parliamentary committee meeting.

The ECP's decision to withhold the results has jeopardised holding of election for next prime minister of the country, The News said.

After the inclusion of independent candidates, the total number of PTI seats in the National Assembly has reached 125, said Chaudhry. The count for the PML-N and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) stood at 64 and 43 seats respectively.
