The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of a plea pertaining to its contempt by PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar.
Counsel for Fawad appeared before the ECP bench and submitted that his client could not attend hearing as he was unwell.
ECP member Ikram Ullah said his client has always tried to avoid the proceedings. Member Nisar Durrani said the ECP would issue and appropriate order on it [absence of the client].
Asad appeared in person before the ECP and Durrani told him that his counsel avoided the bench. Asad replied that he appeared in person in the absence of his lawyer. He requested adjournment of hearing till Oct 24 and expressed the hope that by that date Fawad would have recovered from his illness.
Durrani said he also hoped that Fawad would recover by Oct 24 and you could also meet him.
