ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) restored former federal minister Faisal Vawda as a senator and withdrew the victory notification of Senator Nisar Ahmad Khuhro.
The ECP, in line with orders of the Supreme Court, withdrew the recent notification de-seating Mr Vawda from the Senate and restored the notification dated March 10, 2021, declaring him a returned candidate.
But all this will be a short-lived arrangement as Mr Vawda, under a commitment given to the Supreme Court, would resign, paving the way for a fresh election.
Meanwhile, the ECP notified Syed Waqar Mehdi of the PPP as a returned candidate on a Senate seat from Sindh.
The seat fell vacant after the resignation of Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar of the same party.
