LAHORE: The Election Commission has approved Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) candidate Ayaz Sadiq’s nomination papers for upcoming by-election in NA-122 constituency of Lahore.
Ayaz Sadiq’s eligibility for by-polls was challenged by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Awami Tehreek and Justice Party.
The political parties urged the Election Commission to reject Ayaz Sadiq’s nomination papers, stating that he does not fulfill requirements of Article 62 and 63.
The Election Commission rejected all objections and approved nomination papers of the PML-N candidate.
The NA-122 seat was vacated after an election tribunal de-seated former NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq after finding massive irregularities in the election.
