ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has started investigating the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the foreign funding case, on Wednesday.
A notice was sent by the commission to both parties. According to the notice, representatives of the PPP and the PML-N have been directed to present themselves before the scrutiny committee of the commission on November 26.
Both the PPP and the PML-N have been accused of receiving illegal funds from the US and UK. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Farrukh Habib filed a petition against the PPP and the PML-N at the ECP.
“The PPP and the PML-N should worry about accounting for the funds they received from the US and the UK,” said Habib.
Habib said that both parties were not willing to discuss facts about their funding. He said that the PML-N had used party funds to launder money.
“As the petitioner in this case, I will not let the PPP or the PML-N flee,” he said.
