General Election 2018: Imran, Shahid Khaqan and Gulalai's nomination papers rejected by ECP

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) rejected on Tuesday the nomination papers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Sardar Mehtab Abbasi, along with Ayesha Gulalai, who had been affiliated with the PTI in the past, for the NA-53 constituency of Islamabad.

The nominations of the politicians were rejected over violation of Section N of the affidavit, which relates to the contribution of a candidate in his or her own constituency.

According to the returning officer, the candidates failed to fill the affidavit as per the requirements.

The candidates have vowed to challenge the decision in the election tribunal tomorrow (Wednesday).
