According to the ECP, the decision delayed in the case because of PTI's strategy, which first raised objection to the jurisdiction of the commission and then challenged its powers in the Islamabad High Court twice.

Founding member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Akbar S Babar Wednesday said that PTI Chief Imran Khan's tall claim of promoting neat and clean politics has already been proved false, adding that Imran was promoting politics of inheritance.

The five-member bench which is hearing the petition filed by former PTI member Akbar S. Babar, is headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retired) Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan.

Dismissing the request, the ECP asked the party to submit all the funding details before the commission by September 07.

The party has failed to submit details of its accounts and funds to the ECP since the past two years, however, it has submitted the records to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, PTI leader Naeem-ul-Haque said the party was willing to disclose its account details and also called for other parties to do the same.

In today's proceeding, PTI counsel Anwar Mansoor filed a fresh reply of PTI and gave arguments before the commission.

"He also said in his petition that, "$3 million worth of funds were obtained by the PTI chief Imran Khan, allegedly transferred from illegal Middle East sources to PTI members' bank accounts".

Abbasi has alleged that Imran should be disqualified from Parliament for concealing his assets and receiving foreign funding.
