ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Wednesday demanded Finance Minister Ishaq Dar's resignation with immediate effect after being formally charged.

In a high-level meeting of the party, chaired by party Chairman Imran Khan, the demand for an early election for a 'new mandate' was put forward.

"The names of all individuals wanted by accountability courts should be added to the Exit Control List," a notification issued by the party said.

PTI leaders expressed dissatisfaction at ineffective foreign and interior policies and expressed concern over increasing prices of electricity and other commodities. 

The party meeting took place hours after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) adjourned the contempt of court case against Khan until the Islamabad High Court (IHC) decision on the party's petition regarding the proceedings.

A four-member ECP bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, resumed hearing the case on Wednesday.

The CEC observed that it will issue its order in the contempt case if the IHC does not decide on the case on October 11.

Imran's counsel Babar Awan, who has been appearing in the case, was also ordered to complete his arguments at the next hearing.
