ECP rules against removal of Nawaz Sharif’s name from PML-N

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday announced its verdict against removal of disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s name from 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.
