LAHORE: In a major development, the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday suspended the Election Commission of Pakistan’s order that de-notified 43 MNAs of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The high court also stayed the by-elections on the 43 constituencies of the de-notified MNAs till further notice.

The directive was passed during the hearing of a plea filed by Riaz Fatyana and other lawmakers against the approval of their resignations by the National Assembly speaker. The ECP had de-notified the lawmakers after the speaker had sent their resignations to the electoral body. 

This is a developing story and is being updated with more details.
