Ayaz Sadiq to challenge tribunal's verdict in SC
LAHORE (Web Desk) - Disqualified Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq has decided to challenge tribunal's verdict in Supreme Court of Pakistan.

Talking to media after Tribunal's verdict, he said he would challenge the decision in Supreme Court of Pakistan, saying that the tribunal has not written anywhere that the rigging took place in NA-122.

Earlier, an election tribunal finally announced its verdict , approving PTI’s chairman claims that systematic rigging had taken place in the NA-122 and PP-147 constituencies of Lahore and announced a re-election.

The tribunal also ordered re-polling in PP-147 and PP-148.

Khan had challenged National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq’s victory from the constituency in the 2013 general elections.

Sadiq had defeated PTI chief in the NA-122 constituency after which a complaint was filed in the Election Commission, alleging massive rigging in favour of Mr Sadiq.
