Lahore: The Punjab Assembly on Tuesday approved a resolution according to which the membership of the members of assembly will be cancelled who did not take oath even after three months.
The house recommended the Federal government to alter the law and declare according to election laws that anyone who doesn’t take oath within three-months of elections, their seat will be declared vacant by .
This resolution was put to table by the PTI legislator Momina Waheed. The PTI law-maker indirectly referred to MPA-elect Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan who was elected on the seat of Punjab Assembly but ha s not yet taken ovr the oath.
It is believed that disgruntled Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, could be in hot water if the provincial legislature enacts a legislation in line with the approved resolution. The resolution sailed through the House without any resistance from the PML-N as well.
Nisar had contested the July 25 general elections on four seats of national and provincial assemblies as an independent candidate but won only one seat PP-10, Rawalpindi-V by securing 53,145. He, however, didn’t take oath as member Punjab Assembly.
Another independent candidate Naseer ul Hasnain Shah stood second by securing 22,253 votes while Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf candidate Naveed Sultana grabbed third position by getting 19,247 votes.
The former minister had submitted nomination papers for NA-63 Taxila, NA-59 Rawalpindi, PP-12 and PP-10.
Nisar, while speaking to a private TV channel, last week said that the government should be given time to show its performance.
Nisar further suggested Imran Khan of becoming an unconventional prime minister. He further urged the prime minister to think less and do more.
