LAHORE: In a massive upset for Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN), an Election Tribunal Saturday disqualified Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq as member of the lower house of the parliament with immediate effect, Samaa reported.

"I will honour the ruling whatever it may be," Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan told reporters ahead of the ruling.

Declaring the election null & void,  Justice (Retd) Kazim Ali Malik ordered re-polling in NA-122  at the earliest since Sadiq's disqualification has rendered the seat vacant.

A similar ruling came for PP-147 Lodhran, the home constituency of PTI leader Jehangir Tareen.  PMLN's Mian Mohsin Latif was elected as member Punjab Assembly from PP-147 in May 11, 2013 general election.

It took no less than ten agonizing hours for Election Tribunal to announce the verdict, which was supposed to be issued by 10:00 AM....

The long cliff-hanging wait saw hundreds of Khan's and Sadiq's supporters almost clashing outside the building of the tribunal office.

PTI's fretful first lady Reham Khan was biting her nails waiting for the announcement of election tribunal's verdict.

Khan later lauded the verdict calling it a victory of Inasf (Justice).

In a message on Twitter after the tribunal’s decision, Khan thanked his supporters, especially youth and women, for supporting his struggle.

 

 

PMLN leader Ayaz Sadiq  had defeated Khan in the last general elections.

Khan's party later challenged Sadiq's election in election tribunal alleging his party of organized vote rigging.

Ayaz Sadiq was elected speaker of the National Assembly following the May 11, 2013 general elections.

The tribunal had reserved the verdict on both the petitions after hearing arguments and announced the same on Saturday.

Earlier, counsel for  Ayaz Sadiq and Mohsin Latif submitted before the tribunal that the elections were held in a fair and transparent manner in accordance with the election laws.

They pleaded the tribunal to dismiss petitions as those were based on mere allegations.

Imran Khan and Siddiqui's counsel contested their plea and requested the tribunal to order re-elections.
