Petition seeking Ayaz Sadiq’s disqualification filed in election tribunal

LAHORE: A petition seeking disqualification of former National Assembly (NA) speaker Ayaz Sadiq from the Parliament and declaring the results of NA-122 by-polls void, has been filed in an election tribunal here, ARY News reports on Tuesday.

According to details, the petition was filed by Pakistan Awami Tehreek’s candidate for NA-122 Lahore by-election Ishtiaq Chaudhry in which it was stated that Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) used government machinery to make Ayaz Sadiq  win.

It was also claimed in the petition that “technical rigging” took place as the voters list was changed.

“Polling agents in several stations reached late due to which the voting process could not start on time and the people went back to their homes without casting their votes”.

He pleaded to the tribunal to disqualify Sadiq and declare the results of the recently held by-election in NA-122 as void.
