The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday sought a written reply from Member of National Assembly (MNA) Captain (r) Mohammad Safdar till August 9, for concealing assets of his wife, in his nomination papers.
A five member bench of the ECP, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice Retired Sardar Ahmed Raza Khan conducted the proceedings of plea filed by Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf Nawabzada Salahuddin for disqualification of Capt. Safdar.
During the course hearing, Counsel for Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaf apprised the bench that Capt (r) Safdar had not mentioned in his nomination papers the ownership of foreign properties of his wife.
He prayed the ECP’s bench to disqualify Cap (r) Safdar from seat of National Assembly.
