Pakistan Tehkeek-e-Insaf Standing Committee on Accountability and Discipline (PTI-SCAD) has expelled MPA Uzma Kardar from the basic membership of the party for committing ‘irresponsible conduct’ thus her behaviour is unbecoming of a PTI member.

“You were expelled from the party for a period of one month and you were required to reply and to appear before the Sub-Committee of Standing Committee for Accountability and Discipline (SCAD),” the notification said.

“The Sub-Committee is convinced that being a Member of the Provincial Assembly of Punjab on a reserved seat you have acted in a very irresponsible manner and your conduct is unbecoming of a PTI member therefore you have been expelled from the basic membership of the party. As a consequence you are also not eligible to hold any post or position at the parliamentary level,” the PTI disciplinary committee said.

However, Uzma Kardar may appeal against this decision to the Appellate Committee if she wishes to exercise right to Appeal within seven days of said decision.

In a notification issued Sunday titled ‘Subject Expulsion from party membership under clause XII of the Constitution of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf.’
