The Azad Kashmir Election Commission has issued an arrest warrant for PTI leader Ali Amin Gandapur, who was recently nominated as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister by PTI founder Imran Khan.

According to the election commission, there has been a case registered against Ali Amin Gandapur for violating the code of conduct during Azad Kashmir elections.

A letter of arrest of Ali Amin Gandapur has been issued to Deputy Commissioner Dera Ismail Khan, in which the nominated chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been directed to appear before the Election Commission of Azad Kashmir on February 28.

It should be remembered that the petition against Ali Amin Gandapur was filed by lawyer Raja Zulqarnain during the 2021 election.

Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder Imran Khan had nominated Ali Amin Gandapur as his party’s candidate for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s chief minister.

“KP’s chief minister will be Ali Amin Gandapur,” said the former prime minister while speaking to journalists in Adiala jail

PTI-backed independent candidates secured eye-opening 84 seats in KP Assembly and are in comfortable position to form the government.

Moreover, he once again brushed aside in forming an alliance with either the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), which won 79 seats, or the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) which secured 54 seats.

The PTI founder also brushed off the possibility of forming a coalition government with Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).

Khan said that he had directed his party leaders to hold talks with other parties except these three.

Commenting on Nawaz Sharif’s victory speech postponement, he said that PMLN supremo knew he and his daughter have “lost both elections”.
