ISLAMABAD: Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday suspended Punjab Assembly membership of PML-N’s Abdul Waheed Chaudhry for holding two computerised national identity cards (CNICs).
Chaudhry was elected MPA from Multan’s PP-196 in 2013 general elections on ruling party’s ticket. He was later assigned portfolio of Minister for Prisons Punjab.
According to reports, the ECP suspended Chaudhry’s membership in the light of Supreme Court orders. The apex court had also ordered registration of criminal case against him, directing the MPA to return back all perks and privileges.
