Web Desk July 07, 2014

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) terminated the provincial assembly membership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Muhammad Yaqoob Nadeem Sethi (PP-175) on Monday, Express News reported.

The decision was taken by an election tribunal on rigging allegations leveled against the MPA. The ECP issued a notification in this regard after the tribunal's decision.

The ECP also restored the membership of another Punjab assembly member, PML-N's Tariq Mehmood Bajwa (PP-170). Bajwa, who had earned a BA from Bahauddin Zakariya University, had earlier been accused of having a fake degree.

His membership was restored after the Supreme Court decided in his favour.

@ Adnan Siddiqui Jahangir Tareen? Legislator? Stay order? Really? Jahangir Tareen's constituency NA-154 is one of the four constituency that PTI is asking for thumb verification for the past one year. Senseless worshiper you said and you were right.

Memberships of several parliamentarians of many parties have been terminated on rigging and bogus degree issues. No-one of mainstream parties like PML-N, PPP, PTI, PML-Q and MQM are spared. Many cases are pending against MNAs & MPAs of these and other parties. Almost all parties and candidates try to manipulate elections. Rigging takes place from all sides in Pakistan.
