ECP rules against removal of N from PML-N


The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday announced its verdict against removing ‘N’ which stands for Nawaz Sharif from the name of the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N).

The electoral body had reserved its judgement on the petition on Tuesday.

Four separate petitions seeking orders for the Election Commission of Pakistan for the cancellation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s registration were earlier submitted to the electoral body.

The petitions, filed by Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, Abrar Hussain Raza, and two others, were unanimously rejected.
