Tribunal disqualifies PTI MNA over concealing loan default

ISLAMABAD: A National Assembly (NA) member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was disqualified by an election tribunal for hiding that he was a bank loan defaulter, ARY News reports on Tuesday.

PTI’s Rai Hasan Nawaz, who was elected into the National Assembly from NA-162 Sahiwal, had taken loan of Rs. 220 million from a bank in 1992 but did not repay the money.

The tribunal has ordered re-election in the constituency within 90 days.

Nawaz had emerged victorious from NA-146 Sahiwal after defeating Independent candidate Haji Ayub after securing 88,974 votes.

Ayub had challenged the result in an election tribunal.
