In the wake of suspension of de-notification of 43 Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) MNAs by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), PTI leader Riaz Fatyana has written a letter to the ECP in which he has sought latter’s assistance so that the party MNAs could attend the National Assembly session, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.
Fatyana writes that the Lahore High Court (LHC) has suspended the de-notification of PTI MNAs, and ordered that by-elections on these 43 seats will not be held.
Earlier on Friday, the Lahore High Court (LHC) released written order in the case of 43 PTI members of the National Assembly (MNAs) who had been de-notified by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
In its ruling, LHC’s Justice Shahid Kareem said that the ECP’s order of the de-notification of 43 PTI MNAs would remain suspended until March 7, 2023.
These MNAs had been de-notified following the acceptance of their resignations by the NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.
