PMLN disgruntled leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan faces disqualification threat
*LAHORE - PML N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan faces disqualification threat as he has not taken oath as Member of Provincial Assembly.*
* A petition was filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Saturday seeking cancellation of membership of members of National Assembly and provincial assemblies who haven’t taken oath after three months of their election.*
The federal government, Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), and disgruntled member of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, have been made respondents in the plea.
According to the petition, it’s violation of the law if an elected member doesn’t take oath despite their election. ‘Chaudhry Nisar is not taking oath after being elected as MPA in the Punjab Assembly,” he added.
The plea also demanded amendment into the law to make oath-taking as mandatory after election.
“A time period should also be specified for oath-taking and those who don’t abide by should be declared ineligible”, the petitioner argued.
A resolution was also passed by the Punjab Assembly on Jan 16 in this regard.
