ECP has de-seated 25 Punjab Assembly Members of PTI!

The Election Commission de- seats 25 Punjab Assembly Members of PTI on defection in violation of A63-A.

After the ruling Hamza Shahbaz Sharif as CM has lost majorly in Punjab Assembly!

On Friday, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) while announcing its verdict in a case pertaining to the dissident members of the Punjab Assembly (MPAs) declared 25 dissident members of PTI de-seated.

“MPAs defected from the party by voting in favour of Hamza Shahbaz,” the ECP said in the verdict.

The election watchdog reserved the decision earlier this week after arguments were concluded in the case.

ECP was supposed to announce the decision on Wednesday but had postponed the ruling.

The reference against the dissident lawmakers was sent by Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi.

It was accepted by the election watchdog for violating Article 63-A which pertains to defections.

The ECP’s verdict is crucial in light of the Supreme Court’s order in Article 63-A presidential reference.
