|Shujaat seeks legal advice on references against eight MNAs|
04 August 2012
ISLAMABAD: President Pakistan Muslim League (Q) Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain Friday deferred filing disqualification references against 8 party lawmakers, who were earlier issued show-cause notices, and sent their replies to the legal team to prepare the disqualification references.
After receiving legal advice the disqualification references will be sent to the Speaker National Assembly. Sources say the legal team will now submit its recommendations within two days, after which Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain will send the disqualification references against four of the party legislators (who had already joined the like-minded group of PML) by early next week.
On the directives of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, the PML-Q had issued show-cause notices to Kashmala Tariq, Asim Nazeer, Krishan Chan Parwani, Sumera Malik, Dr Doniya Aziz, Arbab Zaka, Amir Muqam, Khadim Hussain, Dr Ghulam Haider Sameejo, Humayun Saifullah and Owais Leghari who had violated party discipline in the election of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf. While Sumera Malik and Dr Doniya Aziz submitted replies justifying their absence from the voting process, others failed to do so.
References against Amir Muqam and Owais Leghari will be issued on the basis that both had joined other political parties despite being elected on the tickets of PML-Q. Amir Muqam has joined PML-N while Owais Leghari has joined the PTI.
In her reply Khasmala Tariq challenged Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain’s leadership as the party head saying was not the legally and constitutionally recognised “party head” nor the “head of the parliamentary party” in the National Assembly.
