Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa said that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is a constitutional body and no one can interfere in its domain. This statement was made during a hearing of a petition by the ECP challenging the Peshawar High Court’s decision to restore the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) election symbol, the ‘bat’. The PHC had deemed the ECP decision to revoke the PTI’s bat symbol as unconstitutional and directed the ECP to return the symbol to PTI. The ECP has approached the Supreme Court against the decision by the PHC. The PTI’s intra-party elections, held on December 2, were challenged by estranged PTI founding member Akbar S. Babar, who alleged that the party had carried out a selection process aimed at throwing out party workers to give the reins to a few lawyers. The ECP nullified PTI’s intra-party elections on December 22, declaring the party ineligible to obtain its traditional electoral symbol of ‘bat’. The case is currently being heard by a three-member bench, comprising Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa and justices Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Musarrat Hilali.
