Shahid Khaqan Abbasi takes oath as MNA


ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday took oath as a member of the National Assembly (MNA).

NA Speaker Asad Qaiser administered the oath, after which Abbasi signed the roll of members.

It is worth mentioning here that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi had contested the July 25 general elections on two seats – NA-53 and NA-57, but had lost from both the constituencies.

Later, the PML-N had awarded him a ticket for by-polls in the NA-124 constituency of Lahore, which was vacated by Hamza Shehbaz following his decision to retain the provincial assembly seat instead.
