Dual nationality: Deadline to submit affidavits extended till 30th November

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Monday decided to extend the deadline for members of parliament for submission of affidavits on nationality till November 30.
The decision was taken in a key meeting of ECP on Monday.
Additional secretary of election commission Muhammad Afzal Khan said that the deadline was extended on the request of parliamentarians.
Muhammad Afzal Khan further said that the affidavits will be accepted after confirmation.
According to sources in the ECP, there were 212 lawmakers, including some leading politicians of the PPP, MQM and the opposition’s PML-N did not submit the affidavit by Nov 9, the deadline set by the ECP on the basis of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the dual nationality case.
Besides this, the ECP was also to decide about affidavits submitted by dozens of lawmakers without the required attestation.
Those who have defied the ECP directive include 75 members of the National Assembly and 29 senators. Besides, there are 76 members from the provincial assembly of Sindh, 24 of Punjab, seven of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and one of Balochistan who have not filed declarations.
The ECP, through a letter on Oct 9, had asked MPs and provincial lawmakers to submit within one month declarations which should be attested by oath commissioners to affirm that they did not posses dual nationality, warning that those failing to submit the affidavit on oath would be considered dual nationals and action could be initiated against them.
Khan further said that by-election for PS-21 in Sindh, scheduled for Nov 17, was postponed till Dec 4th on account of Muharram.
