ISLAMABAD: National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq on Thursday wrote to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) about the resignations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)'s lawmakers.

The speaker had on Wednesday remained unsuccessful in verifying the resignations of the PTI lawmakers because of their refusal to meet him individually, although they had turned up in parliament.

In his letter to ECP Sadiq informed it that despite consistent efforts the members of the PTI whose resignations were received in the Secretariat have avoided to come forward to verify genuineness and voluntarily nature of these resignations.

Last month, the ECP had through a letter sought the position on PTI's resignations and asked the speaker to give a date on which he accepts these resignations in view of the mandatory six days requirement for holding bye-elections after a member resigned from his seat.

In reply to this letter, Speaker Sadqi wrote a letter to the ECP last month, confirming to it that resignations of the PTI members have been received in the Secretariat. Sadiq said he was considering them under rule 43 of rules of procedure of assembly.
