The Election Commission of Pakistan removed 25 members of the PTI from their seats in the Punjab Assembly at the end of the previous month for voting against party lines during an election for the position of chief minister in the province. By-elections will now be placed on 20 out of 25 seats in July, and it is anticipated that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N)  would engage in a fierce competition.
