A three-member bench of the ECP, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza heard the petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in Islamabad.

During the hearing, Jehangir Jadoon represented PML-N, Barrister Zafarullah represented Maryam and Hassan Maan represented PTI.

The lawyer of the PML-N and Maryam asked for a copy of the petition from the ECP and said they would submit a response after going through it.

Directing the authorities concerned to provide a copy of the petition to PML-N, ECP asked them to submit their reply in the next hearing on June 25.

Talking to the media representatives in Islamabad, Parliamentary Secretary for Law Maleeka Bukhari said PML-N counsel took a U-turn before the election commission when he stated that Maryam Nawaz is not party vice-president.

Bukhari stressed being a convicted person; Maryam cannot hold any party office, according to Radio Pakistan.

Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was appointed as the senior vice-president, while Ahsan Iqbal was made the general secretary.
