ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) issued the de-notification for Speaker of the National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Monday, NewsONE reported.

Election Tribunal Judge Kazim Malik on Saturday de-seated National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq after nullifying his election from NA-122 and directed the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to hold a re-election in the constituency.

Ayaz Sadiq had defeated the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan in the May 2013 general elections, but his victory was challenged by the PTI chief in the tribunal.
