The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has put the case against the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for not holding intra-party polls in cold storage after the party ignored several deadlines. The PML-N was supposed to hold the polls by May 14, 2022, and submit the relevant certificate by May 21, 2022, in order to obtain or retain a poll symbol. The ECP had given ultimatums to the party, asking it to hold elections within a week or be ready to lose the election symbol. A five-member ECP bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikander Sultan Raja had given the PML-N two months to hold intra-party elections but mysteriously postponed the hearing on March 14, 2023. Meanwhile, five cases against PTI Chairman Imran Khan, Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar for use of intemperate language and contemptuous remarks against ECP are fixed for hearing before a four-member bench headed by ECP member from Sindh Nisar Ahmed Durrani, while another contempt case against Fawad Chaudhry has been fixed before a five-member bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja.
