Islamabad: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) revoked the assembly membership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz MNA, Khawaja Saad Rafique , after an election tribunal de-seated him on the basis of irregularities in NA-125 constituency during the 2013 general elections.

The ECP said in its notification that after the election tribunal’s decision, the railways minister’s membership should be deemed revoked from May 4.

The election tribunal said that several irregularities were committed in the constituency during the general elections and new polls should be conducted on the NA-125 seat.

The PML-N has decided to challenge the election tribunal’s verdict in the Supreme Court.
