The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) filed an intra-court appeal on Wednesday against the order of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to notify the members of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on the five reserved seats of Punjab Assembly, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), and the federal government were made parties in the intra-court appeal filed by PML-N vice president.

It was adopted in the appeal that a single bench of the LHC had ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to notify the PTI members on the five reserved seats of the Punjab Assembly.

It was demanded in the appeal that the court declare the order of the single bench to notify the PTI members on the five reserved seats of the Punjab Assembly null and void.

“Until the final decision of the case, the order of the single bench to issue notification for appointment on the five reserved seats of the Punjab Assembly should be suspended,” it requested.

“The case should be fixed for hearing today,” it added.
