Peshawar High Court again returns the bat symbol to PTI

Peshawar High Court struck down an Election Commission of Pakistan decision to take away Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insafe’s electoral symbol, bat, on Wednesday.

The decision was reserved by a two-member bench of the PHC including Justice Arshad Ali and Justice Anijaz Anwar and was announced shortly afterwards on Wednesday.

ECP had deprived the PTI of its electoral symbol after ruling that it had not held intra-party elections as per its constitution.

There were a total of 14 parties in the case, eight of which failed to show up in court in Wednesday’s hearing.
