The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has summoned Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Ali Amin Gandapur on Tuesday to explain discrepancies found in his statement of assets and liabilities submitted for the 2024 general elections.

The ECP has directed the Gandapur CM to appear in person on Tuesday and provide an explanation regarding his assets.

The ECP had previously agreed to hold a hearing on a petition seeking the ouster of Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur.

A two-member bench issued a short order on the petition, stating that Ali Amin Gandapur had failed to submit his assets to the election commission.

Jamiat Ulema Islam (JUI) Kafeel Nizami filed a petition to disqualify Gandapur, alleging that he made false statements about his property in the nomination papers, thereby questioning his integrity. The petition urged the ECP to remove Gandapur from the post of chief minister.

In the petition, Kafeel Nizami, told the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that 735 kanals of land in DI Khan was temporarily transferred to Ali Amin Gandapur, although Asif Khan was the original owner.

The acquisition of a Land Cruiser vehicle by selling the same land disqualifies him from holding the State Assembly seat due to providing false information.
