SC annuls membership of PML-N MPA over fake degree

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has decaled null and void the membership of a ruling party’s member of Punjab Assembly.

Iftikhar Ahmed was elected from PP-81 constituency of Jhang district on the ticket of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). But a petition was filed against his eligibility for having a fake degree.

The Supreme Court after hearing the case against the PML-N MPA directed the Election Commission of Pakistan to disqualify Iftikhar Ahmed’s membership.

The commission would now issue new schedule for holding polls in the constituency on the vacant seat.
