ISLAMABAD: The Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) said on Thursday that fates of Imran Khan and Jehnagir Tareen will be decided on the same day.

The CEC said that verdict on references for disqualification of Tareen and Imran Khan will be announced together.

He was hearing disqualification references against the two politicians today. The hearing was adjourned till December 26.

During the proceedings, Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leaders Talal Chaudhry and Muhammad Khan Daha requested that their lawyer be changed to Akram Sheikh, who is counsel for Sharif’s children in the Panama Leaks case.
