ISLAMABAD: 

Pakistan Interior Ministry has asked Election Commission of Pakistan not to register the Hafiz Saeed backed Milli Muslim League as political party.

Raising red flags at the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) inquiry prior to registering Milli Muslim League (MML) as a political party, the Ministry of Interior urged ECP to avoid registering MML as a political entity, maintaining that allowing such parties to flourish will fuel violence and extremism in domestic politics.

The ministry’s decision comes just a day after a parliamentary panel castigated the election supervisory body for allowing MML , which is a political offshoot of Jamatud Dawa (JuD) to contest by-poll in NA-120.

The ECP replied that the MML candidate had contested the poll as an independent candidate, adding that it had sought clearance from the interior ministry.

However earlier the Sipah e Sahaba based parry MPA has been successfully integrated into the mainstream politics.
