ECP issued notice to PML-N over using govt machinery in NA-120 campaign

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday issued a notice to PML-N’s Pervaiz Malik, demanding a written response to Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) allegations that the ruling party was using state machinery in Begum Kulsoom Nawaz’s campaign for NA-120 by-polls.

The notice told Malik to submit his reply within three days and warned him to “refrain from such activities [participate or use state machinery in Mrs Nawaz’s campaign] and also advise other MPAs to stop such activities so that [NA-120] by-election is held in accordance with law”.

Faisal Mir, PPP’s nominee for NA-120, had alleged on Sunday that “Malik and MNA Hamza Shahbaz, along with provincial ministers and MPs, are using the chief minister’s office to run [the NA-120] election campaign for Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.”
