The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has decided to serve notices to Fawad Chaudhry and Azam Swati over allegations leveled by the federal ministers.

As per details, the Election Commission will take action after serving the notices. The Election Commission also sought a record of the allegations of the ministers from PEMRA, further action will be taken after the record is released.

Earlier Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja on Tuesday chaired a meeting over allegations leveled by the federal ministers. According to details, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) members and higher officials attended the session.

The participants deliberated upon the discussions which took place during the meetings in Standing Committee on Parliamentary Affairs and President House. The ECP members expressed anger over federal ministers for accusing the commission of taking bribes.

The allegations are baseless and unacceptable as the ECP is a constitutional department, they stated. Earlier, federal minister Azam Swati had leveled serious allegations against the ECP of taking bribes.

During the session of Standing Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, the minister criticized the commission for making fun of the Parliament. In a protest against the statement of Azam Swati, the ECP officials had walked out of the meeting.
