The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) terminated the provincial assembly membership of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Muhammad Yaqoob Nadeem Sethi (PP-175) on Monday, Express News reported.
The decision was taken by an election tribunal on rigging allegations leveled against the MPA. The ECP issued a notification in this regard after the tribunalâ€™s decision.

His membership was restored after the Supreme Court decided in his favour.
