The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has moved to the Lahore High Court against Election Commission of Pakistan which has failed to issue notification for the success of five PTI MPAs on reserved seats which fell vacant after the disqualification of the party dissident members of Punjab Assembly by the commission itself, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
However, the ECP is not notifying them thus violating the rules and law by not doing so, the petition adds.
It states that letters have also been written to the ECP requesting it to issue notification but to no avail.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on May 20 had de-seated 25 dissident Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPAs who voted for PML-N’s Hamza Shehbaz Sharif in Punjab chief minister election. Among this lot, there were five unelected MPAs who came to the assembly on reserved seats.
