PTI to challenge ECP decision, says won’t let Ayesha Gulalai sit in assembly | Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday that the party will challenge the Election Commission of Pakistan’s decision to not denotify estrange party member and MNA Ayesha Gulalai.

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry spoke to media, where he said the party will take the issue to its logical end.

“We will not let Ayesha Gulalai sit in the assembly,” said Chaudhry, adding that Gulalai spoke of leaving the party in front of the media.

“We will follow the matter to the end, her actions damage the struggle of other women,” he said.

PTI leader Shafqat Mahmood also spoke to media earlier. He said that the ECP decision to dismiss the reference against MNA Ayesha Gulalai ended constitutional discipline.

Mahmood said that to let Gulalai remain an MNA from the party is a decision against the spirit of the party constitution.

He said that whatever Gulalai said in her statements was an indicator of leaving the party.

Earlier, the ECP dismissed the disqualification reference filed against MNA Ayesha Gulalai, following which she will remain a member of the National Assembly from the PTI.

Sources said that in the short-order, two members of the five-member ECP bench, from Punjab and Balochistan, have authored a dissenting note in the judgment.
