PTI mulling filing reference against CEC: Fawad

ISLAMABAD: Former information minister and PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Saturday that the party was now mulling filing a reference against Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja in the Judicial Commission for meeting with the leaders of political parties, presently part of the coalition government, and assuring them early decision in PTI foreign funding case.

Talking to the media in Islamabad, he said that meeting with the people belonging to the opposite party prior to the pronouncement of decision was a clear-cut breach of the code of conduct devised for judges. He went on to say that the chief election commissioner’s (CEC) salary was equal to that of judges of the high courts. “Now it is up to the PTI’s parliamentary party to decide what should be the future course of action,” he added.
