Former interior minister Ch Nisar Ali Khan breaks silence over political games

ISLAMABAD- Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said that he is not part of any political game.

He was speaking to the media as he arrived to take oath as a lawmaker in the Punjab Assembly link.

“Everybody knows the circumstances which led to my decision regarding not taking oath as the MPA after my success in the National Assembly constituency was turned into a defeat,” he said.

“The provincial government recently introduced an ordinance despite clearly being stated in the constitution regarding the procedure of election and de-seating of an MPA,” he said while expressing his reservation on the ordinance regarding disqualification of MPAs over their absence from assembly proceedings.

“I was told that the oath could not be administered in the absence of speaker and deputy speaker,” the former interior minister during previous PML-N tenure said adding that as per the constitution, the chairmen panel could also administer the oath to lawmakers.

He also announced that he could approach the high court after reviewing his options following a denial from the assembly’s chair to take the oath.
