ECP rejects petitions seeking removal of Nawaz’s name from PML-N

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Wednesday dismissed petitions seeking removal of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s name from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

While announcing the verdict, the commission refused to cancel the registration of PML-N.

ECP had reserved the verdict of the case on September 10.
