Islamabad: A Pakistan court has ordered the election commission to allow the registration of Jammat-U-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed’s Milli Muslim League as a political party.
The order came days after a Pakistani court extended a stay against the “possible arrest” of the JuD chief till April 4.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) yesterday set aside a decision by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to reject the application of Jamaat-ud-Dawah’s political front Milli Muslim League (MML) for registration as a political party.
Justice Aamer Farooq sent the case back to the ECP asking it to proceed further on the application by giving the party an opportunity of hearing, Dawn newspaper reported.
The MML through its president Saifullah Khalid approached the IHC and made the ECP and the interior secretary respondents in the matter.
Challenging the ECP’s order of October 11, 2017, the petition described it unreasonable, illegal as well as against the Constitution and the law.PTI
