Minister: (PML-N respects decision of Election Tribunal regarding NA-122: Pervaiz)

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that they respect the Election Tribunal’s decision regarding NA-122 but they do not agree with the verdict.

Talking to newsmen here on Sunday, he said the law and constitution give them the right to appeal against the decision and they will challenge the decision in the Supreme Court.

To a question, the minister termed the Election Tribunal’s decision as biased as the Tribunal did not de-seat the PTI member of the Punjab Assembly falling under NA-122. It only ordered re polling where PML (N) candidates had won in last general elections.

He said the Tribunal in its decision mentioned some irregularities and mal-practices but these are on the part of Election Commission. National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq has nothing to do with these administrative irregularities, he added.
