Islamabad: Election Commission directs PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to resolve contradictions in assets within 15 days.
A two-member bench headed by the acting Chief Election Commissioner heard the case regarding the contradiction in assets of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto, in which Farooq H. Naek appeared before the Election Commission.
Farooq H. Naek objected to the Election Commission’s authority, saying that under the Election Act, the Election Commission cannot take action on the contradictions in assets.
On this, Arshad Qaiser, a member of the Election Commission, said that if a member conceals or misinterprets the asset, the action is taken under corrupt practices.
Farooq H. Naek took the stand that the Election Commission could only ask for clarification on the contradiction, adding that the contradiction in assets with corrupt practices is not correct.
Later, the Election Commission directed Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to resolve the contradiction within 15 days after a short hearing and adjourned the case till February 6.
