Lahore (Staff Report): The Supreme Court (SC) on Saturday ordered the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to issue the notifications for the Senators-elect.
PTI senator-elect Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar informed the court that he surrendered his British nationality in 2013.
To this, Justice Nisar observed that it appeared Sarwar temporarily renounced his British nationality just so that he could “become a governor and after enjoying the mandates, could restore his [British] nationality .”
The Chief Justice remarked that Sarwar must give an undertaking that he would never restore his British nationality .
In the interim order, the senators-elect has been allowed to vote in the Senate chairmanship elections, scheduled to be held on March 12.
Nuzhat Sadiq, Haroon Akhter, Chaudhry Sarwar, Saeeda Abbasi from Punjab, and independent candidate Khuda Babar from Balochistan were not notified as senators .
