PTI to move IHC against acceptance of 43 resignations

LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday decided to knock at the Islamabad High Court s (IHC) door to challenge the acceptance of 43 resignations tendered by the PTI members of National Assembly (MNAs).

Sources said that the party had drafted the petition which was expected to be filed today or on Monday. A letter written by Speaker National Assembly Raja Pervaiz Ashraf to PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi entailing the acceptance of resignations only after the physical appearance of MNAs in the assembly would also be attached to the plea, sources added.

Mr Ashraf had earlier accepted the resignations of 43 MNAs taking the tally to 123 including a resignation by the AML chief Sheikh Rashid. Later, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) denotified them.
