ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court restored membership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Dewan Ashiq Hussain Bukhari, Express News reported on Monday.
His membership was suspended after Election Commission of Pakistan disqualified him for providing incorrect information in his nomination papers and possessing a fake degree.
Bukhari was elected to NA-153 constituency of Multan.
The MNA, who is known for switching political loyalties, had won last year’s polls against his arch rival Rana Muhammad Qasim Noon, who had contested on Pakistan Peoples Party’s ticket. Noon later filed an application against Bukhari.
A heavyweight in the constituency, Bukhari had won the seat for two consecutive terms in 2008 on Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) ticket, and in 2013 on PML-N’s ticket.
