LAHORE: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Friday barred Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) intra-party elections.
Earlier a day, ECP had fixed Chaudhry Shujaat’s plea to stop the PML-Q intra-party elections.
The ECP postponed the further hearing of the case till August 16.
It is pertinent to mention that PML-Q on July 28 removed Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain from the post of party president.
The party also removed Tariq Bashir Cheema from the post of General Secretary.
Sources privy to the matter said a meeting of the PML-Q central working committee was held, which was chaired by Senator Kamil Ali Agha.
In the meeting, it was decided to hold new party elections in ten days.
For inter-party elections, a 5-member Election Commission was established. While Jahangir A Joja will be the Election Commissioner.
