The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has on Tuesday allowed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (ML-N) vice president to keep her party designation, Dunya News reported.
The ECP rejected Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) petition to remove Maryam Nawaz as party’s vice president, however, restricted that she cannot become the acting president of PML-N.
The Election Commission of Pakistan had reserved verdict in the case on Monday. Advocate Hassan Maan, PTI counsel, had argued during the hearing that Section 203 should be read with Article 62 and 63. A PTI candidate in South Punjab was dismissed from party designation on the same principle which bars disqualified leaders from holding any position in party, he said.
