LAHORE: The Election Commission of Pakistan on Tuesday accepted the nomination papers of Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz candidate for by-election in NA-122 Lahore.
Spokesperson Election Commission of Pakistan Lahore office told APP that Ayaz Sadiq’s eligibility for by-polls was challenged by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Shoaib Siddiqui.
He had urged the Election Commission to reject Ayaz Sadiq’s nomination papers as he did not fulfil the requirements of Article 62 and 63.
The ECP rejecting all objections of Shoaib Siddiqui, accepted the nomination papers of Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.
The NA-122 seat was vacated after an election tribunal de-seated former NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq.
The polling for by-election will be held on October 11, 2015. Dozens of jubilant PML-N workers assembled at Sardar House, Allama Iqbal road and started dancing to the beats of drum.
On this occasion sweets were distributed among party workers and supporters.
