The Election Commission of Pakistan on Friday disqualified former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan from holding political office.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief has been disqualified for five years under Article 63(i)(iii) for submitting a false statement in the Toshakhana reference case, Dawn reported.

Khan’s party immediately rejected the decision and decided to file an appeal to the Islamabad High Court. The party also called on supporters to take to the streets, Al Jazeera reported.
