The PTI lawmakers including Farrukh Habib, Malika Bukhari, Javeria Zafar and Kanwal Shauzab pleaded to set Maryam’s appointment as the PML-N Vice-President aside.

They maintained that Maryam Nawaz’s appointment is in contradiction to the Constitution since she has been disqualified from holding a party position.

Commenting on the matter, the PTI lawmaker in the National Assembly Farrukh Habib said that like Bilawal Zardari, Maryam Nawaz also seeks to inherit a political property.

Farrukh Habib said that she has been convicted by the Country’s courts and is not eligible to hold a party position.
