ECP summoned Taimur Talpur, Over Horse Trading Allegations

Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday summoned Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) leader Taimur Talpur, who confessed to horse-trading in the Senate elections, on October 4.
According to the details, the Election Commission of Pakistan has sent out a notice summoning Nawab Muhammad Taimur Talpur in connection with his admission that a member of the parliament had sold their vote to the Pakistan People Party (PPP) in the Senate elections earlier this year.
During a fiery speech made on the floor of the Sindh Assembly on Thursday, Talpur had said: “The member who sold the vote to PPP during the Senate election is still sitting in the assembly.”
Summoning Talpur to appear before the commission on October 4, the ECP’s order said that a notice had been taken over the allegations levelled by him.
According to a statement, the ECP further said that the verdict on the issue would be announced in the absence of the PPP leader, if he failed to appear before the tribunal.
