ECP summons Nawaz Sharif on July 9 in party name case
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) summoned on Friday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on July 9 in relation to a petition seeking the removal of his name from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) political party.

The notice has been sent to Nawaz’s Jati Umra residence in Lahore. However, at present the prime minister is in London with his family to tend to his ailing wife.

The petition has been filed by Awami Tehreek’s Niaz Inquilabi, who has stated that Nawaz was disqualified from Parliament by the Supreme Court and thus a political party cannot be named after a disqualified person.

The ECP has been pleaded in the petition to take appropriate action in this regard in light of the Supreme Court’s July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case.
