Pakistan is gearing up for general elections on 8 February. Amid this, a major relief came for jailed former PM Imran Khan as a high court in the country declared as unconstitutional the election commission’s decision revoking Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s  cricket ‘bat’ electoral symbol and rejecting its organisational polls.

According to a report in ANN News World , the Peshawar High Court directed the Pakistan Election Commission to return the PTI’s its iconic cricket ‘bat’ electoral symbol and upload the party’s certificate of internal elections on its website.

The decision comes moments after the Imran Khan’s party withdrew from the Supreme Court its appeal seeking the restoration of its electoral symbol.


A two-member PHC bench comprising Justice Ijaz Anwar and Justice Arshad Ali termed the ECP’s decision “incorrect”.

The PTI had approached the Peshawar High Court against the ECP order on 26 December and a single-member bench restored the electoral symbol of the party till 9 January.
