Newly elected PML-N MPAs take oath 2 days after refusing to join PA


LAHORE: Two days after declaring they would not join the assembly, six Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmakers, who were elected to the Punjab Assembly in the recent by-polls, swore oath for their seats on Wednesday.

The lawmakers, namely Sohail Shaukat Butt, Saiful Mulook Khokar, Owais Lesghari, Malik Iftikhar, Jafar Hocha and Nasir, were administered oath by PA Speaker Chaudhry Pervez Elahi.

On Monday, the PML-N MPAs had said they would not take oaths for their provincial assembly seats until Elahi reinstated the lawmakers who had been suspended for allegedly spreading chaos in the house during the budget session.

However, the lawmakers on Wednesday clarified that they had taken their oaths by the permission of the party but would continue their protest by not taking part in the proceedings until the reinstatement of the suspended parliamentarians.
