Imran Khan, the legendary cricketer and the founder of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) has been issued a non-bailable warrant by the election commission of Pakistan.

Haroon Shinwari, a spokesman for the Election Commission, says its panel of judges issued an arrest warrant for Khan on Thursday.

"We have chose to challenge the ECP order today because it is illegal and the commission has no jurisdiction to issue any arrest warrants for a political leader", Khan's spokesman Naeemul Haq told Anadolu Agency. He said the decision was hastily announced without determining the jurisdictions.

Earlier, a bailable warrant was issued against the PTI chief when he reportedly failed to appear before the court.

In the previous hearing, the PTI chief, in his reply submitted through his lawyer Babar Awan, stated that "I respect the ECP and believe in the supremacy of institutions".

However, the PTI approached the IHC which, on September 20, suspended the bailable arrest warrants.

Later, the ECP adjourned the hearing until Oct 26.

He said it was not the fault of Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach from 2011 through 2016, or Bruce Arena who took over from him. Soccer president Sunil Gulati is also likely on the hot seat, but like Arena, he does not feel major changes are needed.

Several times since then, Imran has accused the ECP, among other government bodies, of being compromised and working for the benefit of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister and head of the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
