SIALKOT: The district monitoring officer (DMO) and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) have issued show-cause notices to a PML-N MNA and four MPAs for participating in the election campaign of their party candidate by violating the election code of conduct ahead of by-polls in PP-38, Sialkot-IV, to be held on July 28.

Those who were served with notices on Monday were MNA Chaudhry Armughan Subhani and MPAs Manshaullah Butt, Chaudhry Arshad Javaid Warraich, Rana Arif Iqbal Harnah and Gulnaz Shujaat Pasha.

According to the ECP press release, explanation was sought from the PML-N parliamentarians that why they violated election code of conduct by participating in the election campaign of PML-N candidate Chaudhry Tariq Akhtar Subhani.

The DMO and ECP asked these PML-N parliamentarians to appear personally or through their representatives on June 23, 2021.

The seat (PP-38) was vacated due to the death of PML-N’s MPA Chaudhry Khush Akhtar Subhani.
