ECP denotifies 35 MNAs of PTI after NA Speaker accepted their resignations

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today denotified 35 MNAs of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf on Friday after Speaker of the National Assembly accepted their resignations.

The Commission denotified four women MNAs elected on the reserves seats and 31 other MNAs of the PTI. The ECP has shared the notification pertaining to the denotification of 35 MNAs of PTI. Below is the ECP’s notification.

Speaker of the National Assembly Raja Pervez Ashraf today accepted resignations of another 35 MNAs of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf.

Last week NA Speaker accepted resignations of 34 PTI MNAs and one resignation of Sheikh Rashid, chief of Awami Muslim League.

As the NA Speaker accepted resignations of another 35 MNAs of PTI, total number of resignations, so far, has increased to 81 _ 80 PTI MNAs and one Awami Muslim League MNA.

Now, after the acceptance of 80 resignations since July, the strength of PTI MNAs in the assembly has declined to 73 including the dissidents.

About 131 MNAs belonging to the PTI tendered their resignations en masse after Imran Khan’s government was ousted through a no-confidence motion in April last year.

NA speaker on July 28, 2022 accepted the resignations of only 11 PTI lawmakers while he accepted 34 more resignations on January 17.  Below are the names of PTI MNAs, who are no more MNAs.
