According to a source in the ECP, the election commission was facing intense pressure from ruling quarters for removal of asset details of leaders.
The ECP has also been ordered not to upload such details on website in future, said a source.
The commission had published asset details of last two years of the parliamentarians’, but they are no more available on the website.
Political analysts believe that the details of assets had been removed to deny journalists from making those facts public.
They said the people’s outrage and storm following revelations of Panama Papers had rocked the government cricles, forcing them to take moves to block public access to all such information.
On April 10, 2015, the ECP had released details of Parliamentarians’ assets and liabilities for the financial year 2014.
Who owns what?
According to those documents, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s total assets amount to Rs1.75 billion, whereas Imran Khan’s amount to Rs33.3 million. In the previous year -2013, there had been an increase of Rs3 million in Khan’s assets.
