The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday disposed of the case concerning election of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and restored the party’s electoral symbol of lion.
The case was heard by a four-member bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) SardarRaza Khan. PML-N counsel Faisal Irfan appeared before the commission and informed them about the intra-party election.
ECP had directed PML-N to conduct poll to elect its new president when Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court in Panama case.
