In response to the court’s directive on December 22, the Election Commission (ECP) met with a PTI delegation and assured them of addressing their concerns leading up to the national elections. Subsequently, PTI filed another petition, requesting contempt of court proceedings against the ECP, alleging the electoral body’s failure to ensure a fair playing field.

The ECP rejected PTI’s accusations, stating that a meeting had taken place with the PTI delegation, and their concerns were addressed, assuring a fair playing field for all parties and candidates without discrimination. The ECP emphasized that it had issued instructions to address PTI’s complaints to relevant authorities, and actions were taken on all 33 complaints made by PTI until December 26, 2023. The ECP’s special secretary urged the Supreme Court to dismiss the contempt petition with a penalty.
