Elahi group submits reply in ECP, calls Shujaat ‘disable’


Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid’s (PML-Q) Punjab vice president Rai Mansab Ali Khan submitted on Thursday reply to the Election Commission (ECP) in PML-Q’s internal elections case.

PML-Q’s Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain had approached the commission against the decision of the party’s Central Working Committee decided to remove him as party chief after he asked his party MPAs to not vote in favor of Elahi during the run-off election for the Punjab chief minister.

Rai Mansab said that the PML-Q president Shujaat and the general secretary Tariq Bashir Cheema were removed as per the party constitution. Chaudhry Shujaat’s removal as party head was unavoidable as he was unable to take decisions due to his deteriorating health, he said.

He claimed that Cheema tried to hijack the party and Shujaat was probably not even aware of that. He asked the commission to allow the party to proceed with internal elections as per the constitution of PML-Q. —NNI
