KARACHI: On Wednesday, the Election Commission of Pakistan pronounced Deputy Mayor Karachi Arshad Vohra disqualified for switching parties after being elected to his position.
Vohra had become the deputy mayor on the ticket of Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan. He had been elected chairman from the Union Council 49. Later, he joined Pak Sarzameen Party, infuriating his former party, which then moved the ECP.
Vohra’s counsel Syed Hafizuddin told media representatives that his client had been nominated for the post by MQM-London, and explained that “he left the party because of the party’s treason.”
