ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday sent notices to deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif asking him to appear before the commission in person or through a counsel on September 13 in a case filed by a lawyer who has sought delisting of the ruling PML-N as a political party.

Raees Abdul Wahid, an advocate of the Islamabad High Court, filed an application with the ECP to delist the PML-N as political party and ban Sharif from taking part in any political activity since he has been disqualified as member of the National Assembly by the Supreme Court.

The PML-N is registered under the name of Sharif, who has already relinquished the office of party president. Sardar Yaqoob Nasir has been appointed as acting president of the party.

The ECP has fixed Wahid’s petition for initial hearing on September 13. Sharif is likely to engage a counsel to represent him.

Bittu | 4 years ago | Reply Who has the right to insult millions of pml(n) supporters? The party does not belong solely to Nawaz sharif but those millions of supporters who still want to vote for the party whether Nawaz is the head or not. No one has the right to insult millions of pml(n) supporters?
Niaz Ali Mahar | 4 years ago | Reply PMLN doesnot belong to one person.It is owned by the hundreds of millisions of Pakistani Patriotic people/Voters. Our Leader Nawaz Sharif himself stepped down to honour the Supreme Court Bench consisting of 5 members smaller Bench.The Verdict is still questionable by the millisions of patriotic people of Pakistan including the Senior lawyers of Pakistan. Even then legal process has been done. The new leader has been inducted..No body on earth can usurp the rights of the millions of pakistani people. No body can eliminate the Biggest Party i.e PMLN of Pakistan Political Sceenorio. Moreover Mr Raees Abdul Wahid Advocate has nothing to do with the case. Review petitions have already been filed by Nawaz Sharif in the Supreme Court of Pakistan and are under process.Under these circumstances the request of Mr Raees Abdul Wahid is baseless and illegal beyond any doubt.Hence his application may kindly be dispenced with and dropped as per law. I must remind all that Nawaz Sharif is in the hearts of the millissions of patrotic people of pakistan. No body on earth can prevent the millisions of Voters of PMLN to contact their leader Nawaz Sharif, get his advises from time to time.
