ISLAMABAD - Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) still awaits more than a dozen lawmakers to submit with the commission the yearly statements of assets required under the Constitution.

Though the deadline, September 30, had lapsed about two months back for the submission assets statements over 15 lawmakers have so far not filed their yearly statements with ECP triggering the commission to notify their names and temporarily suspend their memberships.

The ECP under the law is to notify 'by October 15' the names of those who do not submit their statements by the last prescribed date (Sept 30) and to direct that such members will cease to function till the legal formality is fulfilled.

On Friday, ECP once again notified names of the lawmakers who have so far not turned up to share details of their annual assets.

Lawmakers in Balochistan Assembly and Senate have shared statements of their assets with ECP while members in Sindh and KP assemblies and few lawmakers in National Assembly have so far not approached the ECP to meet the constitutional obligation.

MNAs Sajid Nawaz from Peshawar, Sheharyar Afridi from Kohat and Dr Muhammad Azhar Khan representing Abbottabad are the lawmakers in lower house of parliament who have so far not shared their assets details.

Seven members of Punjab Assembly too have not fulfilled the legal formality. They include MPAs Dr Salahuddin Khan (Mianwali), Rana Shoaib Idrees Khan (Faisalabad -V), Mian Muhammad Aslam Iqbal (Lahore-XII), Jamil Hassan Khan (Nankana Sahib), Waheed Asghar Dogar (Sahiwal), Sardar Atif Hussain Khan Mazari (Rajanpur) and Abdul Majeed Khan (Layya).

MPAs Aziz Ahmed Jatoi, Parveez Aziz Junejo, Awais Muzaffar, Humayun Mohammad Khan and Shehnaz Begum are members of Sindh Assembly who are still awaited by ECP for filing their assets.
