ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday accepted nomination papers of former speaker of National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq for by-elections in NA-122.

According to reports, the ECP rejected all objections raised by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Ayaz Sadiq’s candidature. Ayaz was de-seated by an election tribunal over election irregularities in his constituency during 2013 general elections.

The tribunal ordered re-election that is going to be held on Oct 11. Another seat was vacated by the ruling party when its sitting MNA – Siddique Baloch – was disqualified by an election tribunal for possessing fake degree.

The ECP is going to hold re-election in his constituency NA-154 Lodhran on October 11.
