On Saturday, the ECP said that it has rejected the nomination papers for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan, dealing a major blow to the former Prime Minister ahead of the upcoming elections slated for February 8, 2024, The News International reported. The cricketer-turned-politician has been at the centre of a political crisis since he was ousted in a parliamentary no-confidence vote in April 2022. He was sent to jail for three years on August 5 after being found guilty of selling state gifts during his tenure as prime minister--the charges he denies, Geo News reported.

Khan is seeking to overturn that conviction, which has barred him from contesting elections for five years. He filed a plea in the Islamabad High Court, but it was rejected, after which the party approached the Supreme Court.
