Court orders notification on five reserved PTI seats

The Lahore High Court directed the Election Commission to notify the five reserved seats of PTI.

Justice Shahid Waheed of Lahore High Court heard the petitions of PTI MPA Zainab Umair. In response to the petitions in the court, the federal and Punjab governments said that the petitions were not admissible. General Punjab said that election rules for by-elections do not allow appointment to vacant reserved seats.

Only in the general election can appointments be made to vacant seats, on which the PTI lawyer argued that under the law, such appointments should be immediate.

Under the Election Law, only PTI women can be elected to vacant reserved seats. The court directed the Election Commission to notify the PTI seats on completion of arguments.
