ECP officially de-notified 25 PTI MPAs who voted for Hamza Shahbaz

Following their disqualification for voting in favor of Hamza Shahbaz during the chief minister’s election, 25 Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) members of the Punjab Assembly (MPAs) were de-notified by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). These members are part of the Punjab Assembly.

Twenty of those who were de-notified were elected to regular seats, three to reserved seats for women, and two to seats under the minority quota system.

Farrukh Habib, a senior in the PTI, revealed that according to the PTI’s priority list, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) would now appoint Batool Janjua, Saira Raza, and Fauzia Abbas to reserved seats for women.

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) petitioned the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) earlier in the day to request that a notification be issued for the de-seating of the dissident members of the Punjab Assembly (MPAs), in addition to prohibiting Hamza Shahbaz from serving as chief minister.

The dissident Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members of the Pakistani Parliamentary Assembly who voted for the PML-N candidate for Punjab chief minister have been removed from their seats by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

PTI counsel Faysal Chaudhry was the one who penned the letter and sent it to Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja.

The legal counsel for the PTI wrote in a letter that since Hamza Shahbaz has lost his majority as a result of the legislators from the PTI being unseated, the ECP ought to prevent him from carrying out his duties as chief minister because of this.
