KARACHI: The Election Commission of Pakistan has disqualified Karachi Deputy Mayor Arshad Vohra.
The ECP announced its verdict in his disqualification case Wednesday. A three-member bench, headed by the chief election commissioner, heard the case.
Vohra left MQM-P to join the PSP while in office, due to which he has been disqualified. The petition to disqualify him was filed by MQM-P after he left the party last year.
He was elected a chairman of UC-49 in District Central.
At the last hearing, Vohra had argued that there is no party under the name of MQM-Pakistan registered with the Election Commission, therefore the petition should be dismissed.

In case of today’s fire too it took ten fire tenders and two snorkels four hours to douse the incendie, but the fire tenders reached the spot quite late.
