ECP rules Shujaat still party head, cancels intraparty elections

PML-Q leader had filed a petition

The Election Commission Pakistan has declared that Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain was still the party head of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q. The top electoral body has also canceled PMLQ’s intraparty election announced by Shujaat’s rivals in the party, SAMAA TV reported.

The ECP has ruled on a petition filed by Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.

Shujaat’s lawyer Omar Aslam told an ECP bench that PMLQ’s central working party removed the party president and secretary in a so-called meeting while it did not have the powers to do so.

The ECP issued notices to the parties, canceling the schedule for the intraparty election.

The ECP ruled that until it gives a verdict on the petition, Tariq Bashir Cheema will remain PMLQ secretary and Shujaat the party head.
