ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan has sent notification to the PTI and its own examination council to show up before it on March 22 to clarify their position over maintaining mystery the PTI unfamiliar financing archives.

He read out selections of the investigation advisory group request sheets where the panel has would not share accounts as a result of pressing factor from PTI.
