Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is a government body responsible for overseeing and conducting elections in Pakistan. It has the authority to investigate and prosecute alleged violations of electoral laws, and can take action against individuals or political parties that are found to be in contempt of its orders.

If the ECP has issued arrest warrants for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan and other leaders of the party, it would likely be because they have been found to have violated electoral laws or to have acted in contempt of the ECP’s orders.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan and other party leaders were issued bailable arrest warrants on Tuesday by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). 

Asad Umar, Fawad Chaudhry, Mr Khan, and others filed exemption petitions with the top electoral body that were rejected by a four-member bench. A surety bond of Rs50,000 must be submitted by the former prime minister and leaders of the PTI to be eligible for bail. There had been a delay in the ECP’s decision regarding the case.
