“As a consequence, you are also not eligible to hold any post or position at the parliamentary level,” it added.
Kardar may challenge the decision within seven days with the party’s appellate committee.
According to the notification, a show-cause notice was issued to Kardar on June 15, by PTI saying, “whereby you were expelled from the party for a period of one month”.
According to the show-cause notice she was asked to appear before the party’s discipline committee on June 17 but the hearing was postponed due to her husband contracting COVID-19. The hearing was subsequently held on June 27.
The notice observes that Kardar’s formal letter was received, that she was “heard very carefully” and the “audio clips of her conversation” provided to the party were “considered” after which the decision was taken.
As being reported, Kardar had made “disrespectful remarks” about the First Lady Bushra Bibi.
