The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has postponed the indictment of former prime minister Imran Khan until August 22. Imran is facing charges of contempt of the electoral body and the chief election commissioner (CEC). Last year, the ECP issued contempt notices against Imran for using inappropriate language against the CEC and the ECP. Imran’s representative, Shoaib Shaheen, asked for the hearing to be adjourned until September and filed a request for exemption from appearing in person on Imran’s behalf. The lawyer informed the commission that Imran needed to visit the hospital for a medical checkup as he had been appearing in multiple courts recently. The hearing was therefore postponed until August 22. During the previous hearing, Imran’s counsel requested a delay, stating that they needed more time to gather the case record.
