ISLAMABAD (Republic policy) – The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Friday filed a petition against the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for appointing media mogul Mohsin Naqvi as caretaker Punjab chief minister in the Supreme Court.

The PTI submitted the plea as a political party while Asad Umar filed a similar petition as a secretary general of the party. The Imran Khan-led party pleaded the top court to declare the notification of appointment of Mr Naqvi unconstitutional.

The PTI also challenged a notification of appointing dissident leader Raja Riaz as leader of the opposition in the National Assembly. It also asked the court to declare the appointment of Babar Hassan Bharwana and Akramullah Khan illegal.

After the PTI-led Punjab government and the opposition failed to cobble an interim set-up in the country’s largest province, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Sunday last finalised media tycoon Mohsin Naqvi for caretaker Punjab chief minister.
