Chaudhry Shujaat Still PML-Q President, rules ECP

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday nullified PML-Q’s Central Working Committee (CWC) decision to release Shujaat from the duties of party president.

The electoral watchdog had reserved its decision in August last year after Mr Hussain approached it when Parvez Elahi’s group had decided to remove Mr Hussain and General Secretary Tariq Bashir Cheema from the party’s top slots.

A five-member bench of the ECP, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja, heard the petition. In his argument, the counsel for Mr Hussain, said a person ceased to be the party’s president only in two cases, either he quits or dies.

The decision to remove Shujaat from the party command was taken at CWC meeting headed by Senator Kamil Ali Agha.
