ISLAMABAD: A petition seeking disqualification of Mohsin Javed Dawar and Ali Wazir was filed before the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday.

Dawar and Wazir were elected members of National Assembly from North Waziristan IX (NA-48) and South Waziristan II (NA-50) respectively. The legislators are also members of the Manzoor Pashteen-led Pashtoon Tahaffuz Movement (PTM).

The petitioner also filed a stay application until the disqualification matter is decided. The application demands that the ECP “restrain” Dawar and Wazir from attending their offices, public offices or NA meetings.

The petitioner accused the lawmakers of “betraying the mother nation.”
