Imran Khan swearing-in on Aug 18, 3 Indian cricketers on invitee list

NationalECP accepts Imran’s apology withdraws notice in Ballot secrecy case

According to the reply, photos of Khan's ballot were taken without his permission.

"The divider (at the booth) was removed due to the rush", Mr Awan told the bench.

However, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today came to his rescue and issued a victory notification for Lahore's NA-131 constituency, declaring Khan the victor of the contest against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's Saad Rafique.

The only constituency that the ECP has withheld the notification for is NA-53 Islamabad where it has demanded a signed apology from Imran for violating the electoral code of conduct while casting his vote during the general election 2018.

Pakistan election officials on Friday accepted the "apology" of the country's premier-in-waiting for violating ballot secrecy in the July 25 elections, removing a key hurdle to his becoming prime minister. Elections for the speaker, deputy speaker and the leader of the House will take place after the MNAs-elect take oath.

Meanwhile, parties allied against the PTI, including Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Pakistan Peoples Party and Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, have chose to field their own candidates for Prime Minister and National Assembly speaker.

Failure to maintain the secrecy of vote attracts a punishment of six months in jail and a fine of 1,000 Pakistani rupees, according to Section 185 of the Election Act 2017, The Dawn reported.

Khan had contested from five constituencies and had won from all of them.

Besides Khan, party colleagues Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi (Pakistan's former foreign minister in the previous Asif Ali Zardari government before he switched sides to join Imran Khan) and Shireen Mazari-seen as the PTI's possible pick for Pakistan's next foreign minister-were also present at the meeting with Bisaria, pictures posted on PTI's Twitter account showed. He further claimed that his party has the support of 180 members in National Assembly.
