LAHORE – PML-N has named Shumaila Rana to regain her seat in the Punjab Assembly, who had resigned from the assembly in August 2009 following a credit card scandal.

The party has also lifted an earlier order to suspend party membership of the former MPA elected after 2008 general elections on reserved seat for women, and has allowed her to move for restoration of her seat in the Punjab Assembly.

Shumaila had allegedly stolen two credit cards and gone on a shopping spree with them, but the allegations were later proved baseless in police investigations. She was exonerated by the court of the charges, on which she had filed a case at the LHC to seek a relief to this effect.While taking to this correspondent, Rana Sanaullah said there was no harm in restoring the party membership of Shumaila Rana.
