PML-N rejects appointment of Election Commission members

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Thursday said that her party rejects the appointment of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) members and terms it ‘unconstitutional’.

The statement issued by Marriyum Aurangzeb stated that the parliamentary committee was ignored in the appointment of the ECP members. The government issued a notification bypassing the Parliament, she added.

She accused the government of violating constitutional, parliamentary, democratic requirements and rules. “The PML-N demands the government to adopt a constitutional and parliamentary procedure on the unilateral step and withdraw the decision”, she added.

PML-N spokesperson expressed that her party demands the ECP members to be convened in consultation with the joint opposition.
