The petition had been filed by PTI ticket hopeful Mulk Munir.

During the hearing, Munir’s counsel informed the court that the PTI sought assurance on affidavits from applicants for party tickets that they will not leave the party or contest as independent candidates in case they are refused tickets to contest the general election.

The petitioner’s counsel said, “All parties are seeking such assurance affidavits but they are illegal and against their manifestos.”

“No political party can stop a candidate from contesting as an independent,” the counsel argued.

After hearing the counsel’s arguments, the bench issued a notice summoning Imran on July 4 (Wednesday).
