A total of 74 MPAs belonging to the ruling PML-N were barred from entering the House after their suspension by ECP. The barred lawmakers include ministers Iqbal Ahmad Chandar and Chaudhry Shafiq.
The suspended lawmakers from other political parties who were not allowed to enter include:
- 6 MPAs from Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI)
- 2 MPAs from PPP
- 2 MPAs from PML-Zia
The ECP on Monday suspended the membership of 261 legislators for not submitting their statements of assets and liabilities.
