ECP restores 16 MPs’ membership

ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday restored sixteen lawmakers’ membership as they filed statements of their assets and liabilities.
Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Joint Secretary Afzal Khan said that Chief Election Commissioner of Pakistan Justice(R) Hamid Ali Mirza had restored membership of sixteen lawmakers, including four MNAs and twelve MPAs, who were suspended on Monday.
The MNAs whose membership was restored included Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam-Fazlur Rehman (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, Federal Minister for Tourism Maulana Atta-ur-Rehman and Federal Minister for Labour and Manpower Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah.
‘Suspend all lawmakers not submitting degrees’
ISLAMABAD: National Assembly Standing Committee on Education Chairman Abid Sher Ali on Tuesday demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to suspend membership of all those parliamentarians who are yet to submit their academic certificates to the Higher Education Commission for the verification process.
Talking to reporters after the committee meeting, Abid said that as the ECP suspended membership of more than 140 lawmakers for failing to submit details of their assets, it should similarly suspend membership of those lawmakers who were yet to submit their degrees.
