ECP dismisses plea to stop notification of Faisal Vawda's senatorship

PTI’s Faisal Vawda resigns from National Assembly seat


Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Vawda on Wednesday resigned from National Assembly and submitted his resignation in Islamabad High Court (IHC).

The PTI leader resigned after voting in the Senate election, and his lawyer filed his resignation in court and argued that the disqualification case is now invalid.

Earlier, after casting his vote in National Assembly, Federal Minister Faisal Vawda claimed that Yousaf Raza Gilani will lose and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will sacrifice some other senator to elect Gilani to Senate later.

It is pertinent to mention here that Faisal Vawda is also contesting Senate elections from Sindh on ticket of PTI. The minister’s bid to contest the elections of upper house of the parliament was challenged by PPP leader; however, Election Tribunal gave the PTI leader clean chit and allowed him to contest the polls.
